Hi, I have a main file with a loader+ 2 buttons in it which loads & unloads 2 external ".swf" files and a trace to monitor the System.totalMemory. PROBLEM IS after  my unload command the memory dosnot get's free and even increasing on every load then unload command.

var loaderObj:Loader
var sp:Sprite= new Sprite()
 
function mcLoad(e:MouseEvent){	
	loaderObj= new Loader();
	loaderObj.name='tension';
 	var str:String="i.jpeg";
	loaderObj.load(new URLRequest(str));
	sp.addChild(loaderObj);
	stage.addChild(sp)
}
 
function mcUnload(e:MouseEvent){
	loaderObj.unload();
	sp.removeChild(loaderObj);
	stage.removeChild(sp)
	trace(System.totalMemory);
}
 
b0.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK,mcLoad);
b1.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK,mcUnload);

try setting sp to null, after you've removed it from the stage.

e.g.

sp = null;

Try using Loader.unloadAndStop().  This is allow help clear all references to the Loader and make it accessible for garbage collection.

flash players garbage collection is not as robust as Java or .NET - you can't force it to happen.
by removing item and deleting references you free them up to be garbage collected but it may not happen immediately.
