These programs are all snake oil and actually REDUCE performance. Avoid at all costs! Anyone who claims these improve performance in anyway have no concept how Windows Memory Management works.

This progy is going to be a KEEPER
Nice easy to use GUI and funtions seem to be working well
Better than paid for programs on market today.

Uh, it does more than display RAM, MrCodeDude. Have you looked at the configuration? It deserves praise. I like how it automatically adjusts cache settings, optimizations, and such.

I don't think this program did anything for my machine, it just displayed how much RAM I did have available. And once it crashed, it led me onto a horror story. I unistalled my recently downloaded Ad Killers and most previous installed programs. Other that that, installation and uninstallation is fine. I don't see any OnFlow files in my machine, so this little program doesn't seem to do anything except display how much RAM you have avaiable.

IT'S THE POWERFULL AND WONDERFULL UTILITY SOFTWARE.
YOU CAN SAVE YOUR MEMORY FOR OTHER APPLICATION.
BUT NO GOOD FOR GAMES APPLICATION. YOU MUST DISABLE THIS PROGRAM WHEN YOU LAUNCH 3D GAMES.

On-flow sneaks in with seveal programs including the latest version of NetCaptor. It's fairly harmless though. To remove it, do a find files for "onflow". The uninstall will show as well as the main folder and two DLL files in the Exlporer plug-ins directory. Run the uninstall, then delete the onflow directory. Restart your system and delete the .dll files. That's it. A pain, but doable

Beware, the latest beta of ram idle's installer has a option to install the "onflow" player. I maid the mistake of installing it. THe onflow player is a set of IE plugins that display advertising. After I installed Ram Idle, Onflow was trying to access the internet, and was setting off alarms on my firewall. When you try to uninstall Onflow, it says it needs IE and "Windows Explorer" to be shut down, and if you use explorer.exe for your shell, you pretty much screwed like I am. Beware before you install.

Honestly, on my Windows ME box with 128MB RAM, I can't tell much difference in my system's speed, although it does leave me with generally a lot more free resources. In games though, I have noticed some hookups and freezes, although there is an option to have the program automatically disable itself when the CPU is under a high load.

Very good program. 192MB On WinME and it does make a difference.
