Clear Your Memory


I am running Vista and use this all the time. It really works for those who don’t have a whole lot of memory. It’s a whole lot easier than re-booting.

How To Clear Your Memory Without Restarting

If you run a windows computer you’ll know like many others than after a while your system will in doubt start running slow. Most people will restart their computer to remove and idle processes. But if there’s a simpler way, why restart every time windows decides it doesn’t like you today?
1. Right click on an empty spot on your desktop and select New – Shortcut.
2. Type %windir%\system32\rundll32.exe advapi32.dll,ProcessIdleTasks in the box.
3. Click Next.
4. Give your shortcut a nice name like “Clear Memory”.
5. Click Finish and you’re done.
Now whenever your computer starts running slow click this shortcut to clear out your memory and get your computer running at a normal pace again.
