CleanMem is a simple but very effective program for trimming memory. One click and it will trim on an adjustable schedule. A litle bit brutal, but there is a theory behind the trimming.
CleanMem really trims. This generates a bit of a problem with optimization/boost and other programs, because it trims everything. The upgrade version is only $4.99, which allows for setting parameters by process. But there is a workaround in the free version. Choose the "Ignore List" option when using the MiniMem setup Wizard. MiniMem will then trim all but the programs you choose to be listed in the dialog box. Still get a big RAM boost from this.
In the end: My idle RAM usage went from 35% to 26% using CleanMem on a 40 minute schedule. Notably, this was with 20 programs added to the "Ignore List"...ones that I want to have their full RAM (Tip: add Explorer.exe).
CleanMem is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from memory optimizer software without restrictions. CleanMem 2.5.0 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
Compatibility with this memory cleaner software may vary, but will generally run fine under Microsoft Windows 10, 8, 8.1, 7, Vista and XP on either a 32-bit or 64-bit setup. A separate x64 version may be available from PCWinTech.
We have tested CleanMem 2.5.0 against malware with several different programs. We certify that this program is clean of viruses, malware and trojans. [Read more]
