Hi

I have create a large memory stream and want to initialize of bytes to zero.
What is the best way to do that? I could make a loop, but wouldn't that be to slow?

A dword loop is quite fast (a byte loop is much slower), but you can also use "ZeroMemory(ms.Memory, ms.Size)". Don't know if that is faster than a dword loop, at least it's shorter...   :-)
