   This instructable creates a Visual Basic program. When you click on the desktop icon, it runs the program.
   The program declares a large string. This takes a lot of RAM, forcing Windows to make space by writing data from RAM to the hard drive storage area.
   The program then terminates, freeing the RAM.

   Your computer now has a large contiguous space for computing, which makes it run faster - for a while.
   This technique is most useful when you use the computer for long periods of time without rebooting, when RAM fills with many separate pieces of data that aren't being used but just taking up space.
   Unless you make major errors with this program (unlikely, it's so simple) there can be no downside to using it; you just might not notice much difference depending on your setup and usage pattern.
   The one real problem that could happen is that your computer doesn't have enough unlocked memory available to do this housecleaning; in which case the program will exit with a possible error message - and you'll be no worse off.
Not that I need to, but is there a way to reverse that code? I believe it screwed my old computer up, and I wanna try it again, but before I do I wanna make sure theres a way to reverse it
Is there a way to direct the script to use a drive other than C: ? Physical drive D:? Network Drive?

i dont see a diference. it still takes me the same time to load portal. after making and clicking it should i restart the computer?
what are the risks/downsides?, and what the hell is physical memory, or any other kind in your computer?????????????????????????????????????
joehadac (author)  AnarchistAsian6 years ago
well i dont know of any... Physical memory is how much ur computer can handle at one point in time (im pretty sure or so im told)
J_SCAP joehadac5 years ago
physical memory.... also known as ram.

it didn't work it came up with expected statement
sooooooooooooooo, what this is doing is allowing your computer to use/read more memory at one time??? can it be reversed just in case?
Fizzxwizz6 years ago
I dont know. But after I deleted both things it was normal again.
Fizzxwizz6 years ago
I tried this and another thing involving making something like this and now my computer is much slower! Could you please help me?
joehadac (author)  Fizzxwizz6 years ago
wat is the other thing?
Cann0n6 years ago
you should have added in the tittle that it is for windows only and software related. i sped my computer up by installed slackware linux and fluxbox
joehadac (author)  Cann0n6 years ago

Also what would be a great addition to this peice is add it as a startup script so you constantly don't have to click on it every login steps 3. Click 'Start' then 'Run' 4. Type in 'gpedit.msc' and hit 'ok' 5. Click on 'Computer Configuration' then 'Windows Settings' 6. Double-click on 'Scripts' and then on 'Startup' 7. Click 'Add' and find the batch file that you created and then press 'Ok'
is something supposed to visibly happen when u click it?

ultrauber6 years ago
wow, i'd do this, but what exactly does it do? does it download software, delete bad programs, what?
joehadac (author)  ultrauber6 years ago
I explain it below... look in the comments
ok, now i get it, but does the physical take up space on your hard drive and does it stay there? does the physical memory delete itself? if not, this could devour your hard drive very fast.
joehadac (author)  ultrauber6 years ago
I guess it current and up to date... like if its done using it the mem will be rersoterf back to the hard drive... ive been using it for a while and still have 50% of my hard drave so theres ur answer
alright. but if you go down to like 0 hard disk space in a month or some insanely impossible thing like that, i want to know. and also, after you do this is there a way to undo it?
joehadac (author)  ultrauber6 years ago
im getting more disk space that i had before first i had 20gigs free now i have 30 gigs free sooo...
oh. well my friend just told me that it would make the computer slower because writing to a hard disk is a physical action of burning it on, whereas your normal ram just pops on and off. so, i think this would be good if you had a solid state hard drive.
does it work on macs
joehadac (author)  INSTRUCTUBAL6 years ago

bobalob6 years ago
can you explain how this works? looks like it just defines an empty string with 8 million entries?
joehadac (author)  bobalob6 years ago
The vbe extension alows your hard to be used as physical memory.
