Do I Really Need Computer Repair Virus Removal?October 11, 2015
How Can I Find A Good Trojan Removal Service?October 11, 2015
Are you running out of memory or RAM? If you’re thinking of getting one of those free “ram optimizers” or “memory optimizers“, please reconsider.
We don’t recommend any software RAM optimizers or software memory optimizers or RAM/memory defragmentation. 🙂
Why not? Because your computer RAM does a great job already. RAM optimizers actually slow your computer down by simulating “optimizing” your RAM.
Here are four ideas for the best way to optimize your RAM:
- Remove unneeded programs that are starting up when your computer is powered up. This option is free and can help reduce your computer startup time as well.
- Remove viruses, trojans, spyware, or any type of malware that may be running on your computer consuming RAM and other resources as well as generally slowing your PC down.
- Contact a local computer company and add more RAM to your computer. This is a great option as you physically have more RAM for all your startup programs and programs you start later and is the recommended option.
- For Windows based computers, optionally, use a ReadyBoost compatible USB drive to boost RAM performance on older systems with less than 4 Gigabytes of RAM. Note this boosts performance, not the total amount of RAM. For more information about ReadyBoost, please visit https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ReadyBoost
Want a second opinion about RAM and memory optimizers? Check out this article at HowToGeek.com: http://www.howtogeek.com/171424/why-memory-optimizers-and-ram-boosters-are-worse-than-useless/ and here’s a third opinion at TheWindowsClub.com: http://www.thewindowsclub.com/do-memory-optimizers-work
In summary, RAM optimizers only simulate and often slow your system down, instead, reduce the amount of start up programs or remove viruses or upgrade the total amount of RAM.
