Step 26: Ram Booster (No known free solution...)

NOTICE: I have heard pros and cons about Ram Boosters. If you have any more info on the subject, I would greatly appreciate it! I would not suggest using this without more research into the product, as there has been mixed reviews. I am simply putting this up here as an option and idea for those who want to take some time to research ram boosters further.

This type of program is only worth using if you have lots of RAM (minimum 1 GB.) Smaller RAM programs like this consume more than they free up.

These programs will speed up any computer system. It works by using New Hard-Disk optimization technology that allows your computer to read data in some cases up to 300% faster from your Hard Drive. It then optimizes your RAM and makes other settings to speed up your Internet connection and overall computer performance.

Because of recent troubles with a lot of ads, spam, and even malware, I would highly recommend that you stay away from the program pictured below. Please research for a good one on your own, and if you find one, feel free to send a link to it! I'm very sorry for any problems that this might have caused anyone.

One suggestion for windows XP and older users: http://download.cnet.com/FreeRAM-XP-Pro/3000-2086_4-10070530.html


<p>The situation could be frustrating and can go a long way to slowing down your system&rsquo;s speed. What do you do at this time? There is need to delete those unnecessary files.</p>
<p>I got a lot of info about enhance my PC speed, It is so nice and useful info for us.Thats why i have recently switched to a new registry optimizer named &lt;a href=&quot;http://softwareswin.com/clash-clans-hackmod-unlimited-v8-332-14/&quot;&gt;Softwareswin&lt;/a&gt; which for me is quite an excellent registry optimizing software.</p>

Step 26: Ram Booster (No known free solution...)<p>I have free software that I'm using in the form of </p><p>&quot;FreeRAM XP PRO&quot; Link &gt; <a href="http://download.cnet.com/FreeRAM-XP-Pro/3000-2086_4-10070530.html" rel="nofollow">http://download.cnet.com/FreeRAM-XP-Pro/3000-2086_...</a></p><p>Download from cnet hope this helps.</p><p>#Nice blog thanks it's helped alot :)</p>
<br> Those <br> temporary and messy files slow down computer and it affects the overall PC <br> performance so we need to clear those messy files in order to get back the <br> earlier speed of a system and there are so many tools like CCleaner and Ninja <br> TuneUp which we can utilize as defragmentation tool. You can download trial <br> version from <a href="http://www.ninjatuneup.com/" rel="nofollow">http://www.ninjatuneup.com/</a>
DO not get the windows (&quot;updates&quot;) they will kill your computers speed!!!<br /> instead, get a security system like norton or kapersky security. i'm pretty sure they will do the same think protecting wise as window updates&nbsp;(please correct me if im wrong, from past exp. i have found the windows updates will slow down your comp.)<br />
I would have to say yes and no. Microsoft released a SP1 that increased speed and disk space quite a bit for all users of Vista a while ago. I would have to say that the risk of a security breach is too great for the minuscule amount of slowing that comes with an update. I haven't noticed any in my experience.<br />
Also, don't use kasperkey or norton. <br><br>instead use:<br><br>Spybot search and destroy<br><br>and <br><br>malwarebytes <br><br><br>With those two you can get rid of virus.
i use avast, it is light unless play games 4 10 hours cuz it to scan temp files,play bf4 it on no frame drop
the reason your computer down is unsufficient harddrive space because system tasks on ram flush to harddrive at shutdown, get a ssd drive or a faster harddrive, or the middle sshd
System updates are what help keep your computer safe. No antivirus can do it alone. ALWAYS update your computer if you have the option to.

<p>How to Speed up Your Computer? 18/08/20140 Comments Friends, many of us may not be aware why our computer or laptop get slower with passage of time. Why the machines do not run as fast as they did when initially bought? The reasons for slow running of the computer can be many. Common causes could be inadequate memory, malwares/virus infection, too many programmes running in the .....- http://goo.gl/BGWThu</p>
Link to &quot;sys.info.org&quot; is dead. Can you repost a current link to this list? Thanks!
got the same mobo ... Dell Dimension 1100 ... Socket 478 3.4ghz Single core... Happy to see that there's still someone using those kind of computer except me xD
Though CC Cleaner is good choice to get your registry cleaned, but sometimes it either takes too long or stuck while optimizing cleaning. Therefore, i have recently switched to a new registry optimizer named <a href="http://www.registryrecycler.com" rel="nofollow">Registry Recycler</a> which for me is quite an excellent registry optimizing software. It is fast and free. <br> <br>
Advanced System Care comes with a ram booster. (it is in the toolbox, under optimize)
for some reason turning off extrenal hard drives speeds mine up :D
I don't know if it's possible to replace the processor in my laptop... it's a bit old, but I can replace the RAM and I'm planning to do so soon... I'm using a Dell - Latitude D600
to late, i already vacumed mine ! &gt;.&lt; it still works but thank you soooooo much for warning me! i wouldnt want to break ma pc! =(
I've done about 5-6 of these steps, and already I'm noticing it's speed. Thanks a million.
Very detailed and helpful guide! You must have spent a lot of time putting all this information together well done! Also learned about some software i never heard of before, thanks!
Could someone on instructables make a Mac or Linux edition? That would be AWESOME for all of us Macintosh users! Thanks! (Not trying to sound annoying here!)
cant you reinstall windows without your freeware programs as well?
So what would happen if i plugged my 500 GB external drive in???
Your forgetting who found the holes, hackers!!!!<br />
He also refers to all hackers as being bad. In fact, hackers are the ones that fix the problems. Crackers, are the ones you should look out for.
also go to services and abolish themes service.
Defragging makes no noticeable improvement on SATA hard drives. It helps a lot on older PATA drives, especially the 33 and 66 class PATAs.<br><br>NEVER defrag an SSD. I have 6 of these. The manufacturer states that the flash technology will access any data in any location at the same speed. Repeatedly writing data (as happens in defrag movements) will decrease the life expectancy of the solid state itself.<br><br>I believe this step should be removed due to the PROBABILITY of readers misapplying the instructions to the wrong media. It should only be for PATA drives.
