    Hello, and welcome to the Instructables community! This currently does not meet our criteria for an Instructable. A completed Instructable:

    - details a finished project with instruction (not just links to instructions)
    - has clear images that you took of your project (web-found clip-art is not acceptable)
    - uses proper spelling and grammar
    - contains appropriate cautions or safety considerations
    - does not violate someone else's copyright
    - does not violate the Instructables terms of service
    - is typically written about something you are very passionate about and want to share.

    If this is a comment, a question, a small tip, or something that cannot truly be a finish project, please post it as a forum topic. If you are looking to start a collaboration, post a topic in the forums. Look here for tips on writing a great Instructable.

    This Instructable DOES NOT works for 2 reasons -

    1) Anything saved as txt file would just be opened in notepad and have no effect.

    2) You shouldn't anyways 'clear' RAM as sometimes it makes PC even slower (cause SOME apps(not all) stop even system services to clear RAM, which is harmful and sometimes you need to restart PC).


    what are the risks/downsides?, and what the hell is physical memory, or any other kind in your computer?????????????????????????????????????

    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)

    Physical memory is storage space that the CPU can quickly access. This program fills up the Physical memory, And the CPU gunks up. When the space is freed by the process being deleted, There is more avalible RAM for a couple of seconds. Then the ram is taken by other programs that need it.

    Other kinds of memory include- Hard disk, CD-ROM, CD, DVD, And USB devices. There is no speed boost you gain by deleting off these mediums. This program can be harmful to the computer by overworking the Physical Memory, Shortning the life of it.

       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
