One Way to Solve Memory Problems with your Computer

Written by Robin Nobles


Continued from page 1

Now that we've had our mini lesson in RAM, I've found a really neat and inexpensive software program that helps solve your RAM memory problems: MemTurbo II. It will scour your system for memory leaks, or memory that wasn't released when a software program was shut down.

It operates inrepparttar background to where you don't even know it's there. You'll just see a little green "bar" that indicatesrepparttar 107880 amount of available RAM on your system at that time. Every 15 minutes,repparttar 107881 program automatically recovers RAM, or whenever your RAM gets below a certain level.

You can even do a "deep scrub" that will find RAM that may not be picked up through a regular recover. I just performed a deep scrub on my system, and it recovered 64 MB of RAM.

MemTurbo II only costs $19.95, which is a bargain for what this little program does. You can even download a trial version ofrepparttar 107882 program and use it free for 30 days.

For me, MemTurbo is a "must have" program, because it helps my computer operate more efficiently and saves me a lot of headaches (and sanity). Visitrepparttar 107883 MemTurbo site for more information: http://www.memturbo.com.
