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.

<p>Dont use a disk defragmenter if you have an SSD.. it will kill the SSD drive</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>Very nice post thanks &lt;a href=&quot;http://www.softrainy.blogspot.com/2014/09/how-to-increase-ram-speed.html&quot;&gt;How to Increase Ram Speed&lt;/a&gt;</p>
<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.
Their was another Tip that would help all these Step and it was missed or ignored. How about keeping the Computer itself Cold/Cool? Im looking for affordable options to that. everything else mention in your guide get done Bi-weekly. so great work man.
actualy it does not matter if the bits from the ram are cleared or not the only thing thats important is if the operating system thinks that part of the rams is filled. it sees every thing else as meaningless noise until it puts something there. how ever turning off the computer is helpful because off a bug called memory leak. this happens when a program does not tell the operating system that it is done with its data. causing the operating system to keep that space reserved for the program. over time this can take up massive amounts of space. oh course proper memory management will mitigate this problem. but that require part of the operating system to be rewritten which is out side the scope of the user. so basically if the developers did there jobs right your would not need to restart your computer to free ram. for example my computer (running ubuntu) only needs restarting to install certain updates. i never have to restart my computer to free up space in my ram. however i do have to restart my dads windows machine once a week due to memory fragmentation, but not because of memory leakage.
