recently I did find on a PC magazine DVD a demo of a system tool claiming to speed up the system, freeing the RAM, the Registry etc. This did sound like many others did before.
Having in mind my autopano memory problems with my 8GB Win64bit PC with medium files sizes (5-8Gb)... I gave it a try.
and I was surprised. After first run - it was shockingly slow ;-) but obviously thorough. several thousands orphand registry entries got cleaned. some spyware (allthough activly running uptodate Kaspersky Interent suite active) removed; defragmentaiton including reordering of files dependant on usage of all of my data drives, RAM defragmentation and many many other things.
The result was shocking positive: >700mb cached files are removed (regularily) even a simple opening of IE or any other browser gets faster several 100%. and finally (meanwhile with a 16GB Win64PC) I get regularily 1GB more free RAM available that autopano can claim.
I got with the PC mag I found this software a 1 year license for the Pro version. And I absolutley find the 20$ fee (currently some 13$ special offer exist too) / year I've to pay next year worth & valueable
demo can be downloaded...
one final note: before 1st full scan, take time to browse the dozens of tools that can be selected... I did a "lets do it short, take all option method" approach and finally lost all my opend file histories in my word and excel...
