Dose windows eating up my RAM
Posted on 2000-05-01
Hi my name is Rotem and I have a pentum-1 computer. It keeps
Freezing all the time and I can't figure out why. I'm running a
program I downloaded of the web called "WinRAM-Booster
pro.2000" that suppose to optimize my RAM. It indicated that over
75% of the RAM are occupied after Windows is dune loading and
before I even open another application. Then when I go online
(AOL 4.0 + Netscape 4.72) or when I run another large program
the computer either crush or freeze. Recently I upgraded the RAM
from 32MB to 80MB but the RAM is still over 60% occupied and
still freezing from no apparent reason.
My questions are:
1) What is eating up my RAM? How is that possible that I well over doubled the RAM and still the same present of it is used?
2) Way dose the computer freeze? Some time I don't have to do more then moving the muse or try to shut down a window or an
application or even open a certain file (I run into several download
files that would freeze my computer jest by marking them? I delete them all)
3) WinRAM booster is also providing the list of program running.
There is the list of programs I don't recognize.
C:\PROGRAM FILES\TV VIEWER\TVWAKEUP.EXE
Are they necessary? Are they using a lot of RAM? How do I make
it so they won't start with windows?
4) I removed every unnecessary shortcut from the start menu
folder but there is a Few programs still smarting with windows.
(Yahoo messenger, MSN, Scheduled Tasks) is there another start menu?
I hope you will spread some light on the subject or at list refer me
to someone how can.
Thanks ahead Rotem
