Cleanmem memory manager


Recommended Posts

Running version 2.0 RC, and it's working great. I've set it to auto startup and automatically clean RAM if it gets too high (which still hasn't happened on my Win7 box yet. :lol:).

Running version 2.0 RC, and it's working great. I've set it to auto startup and automatically clean RAM if it gets too high (which still hasn't happened on my Win7 box yet. :lol:).

 

I am glad you like it so far :-)

 

Keep in mind cleanmem auto runs every 15 min from the task scheduler to. That pro feature is for the users who only want cleanmem to run when memory gets high.

For myself I have it run every 15 min. I'm on Win 7 64 bit 8gb of ram.

 

The pro features are enabled for 7 days. I felt that was a fair time for users to decide if they want or even need the pro features.

 

I have no clue how the pro will do. I did my best, but I didn't want to cripple the mini monitor to force the sale of the pro. I simply don't work that way.

 

So I will let the RC be out for the whole week. And by next weekend if I have got no bug complaints and everything looks good I will release it and replace v1.7.0

 

If you haven't make sure to read the help page I made. It shows you all the features that are in the mini monitor now :-)

 

Personally I think the different text options for the mini monitor (which is a pro feature) is worth it the most. Only because I use it the most lol.

 

Currently I have it set to process count and system up time on my system. And when needed I can change it to show other stats when I need the info.

 

The changing of the bar fill picture I think will be nice to. A user can make their own, thus giving a lot of themeing control to the user.

 

Now I rambling on lol. I get that way some times. :P

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.

I just update the setup.

I made one small change to the mini monitor.

On the advanced monitor rules, I had a result date & time column.

 

I was looking at it and realized it was unneeded as the last check time was below the list anyways, and they all showed the same time.

So by removing it it helps it look even cleaner :-)

 

This was not a major change so no need to update yours if you already have it installed till the final release is out. I am sure I will be making more minor changes and final touches by then :-)

That's a relief. :D Since this is my first time using CleanMem's portable version, how would you go about updating it? Do you just download the new version and overwrite the folder containing the old version? Or completely delete the old version and start fresh with the new version?

Just download the new setup or zip and just replace the one you have. :-)

Lol, I was referring to not having to upgrade over the small fix. :P But that doesn't matter anymore, since upgrading is so simple. :D

I was going to add a auto update feature like in my simple port forwarding program. But I decided not to. Once CleanMem is done I don't see to many updates needing to be put out that warrants a auto update feature :-)

 

But people can follow my site by rss, twitter and facebook, so when I do put out an update they will know. And as you seen it is very eay to update. It just installs over the old version. ;)

New update. Bug files and GUI fixes and updates.

 

New screen shot of the GUI changes and the new setup is here

http://forums.pcwintech.com/index.php/topic,1781.msg10583.html

 

Just download the setup and install over your current. Still 2.0.0 as it will be on the final release :-)

 

Hopefully the settings window looks better now.

Thanks for letting me know. The CleanMem.ini was set to always overwrite in the setup instead of never. I have changed that :-)

 

I will update the setup now and it will be that way in future setups.

I'm wondering if you could diagnose my experiences with CleanMem. It works great on my secondary computer (XP Pro, Athlon 64x2, 1GB RAM). However, on my primary computer (specs in sig), many things get jumpy when CleanMem is installed and set to run every 15 minutes. YouTube videos have the audio starting immediately but the video is black for several seconds before appearing, Google Earth is jumpy, and just a general slowness to starting apps and internet browsing. Any idea why it works so well on one computer, but seemingly not so well on another?

It shouldn't be cleanmem. Cleanmem is only running when the task scheduler runs it, then when it is done it closes. SO total time CleanMem is running is about 2 sec. every 15 min by default.

 

The mini monitor does very little as it is just reading windows api's.

 

You can try disabling CleanMem from running and see if it makes a difference. But in the 5 years CleanMem has been out I have never seen or heard of it causing any problems. ;)

When it comes to the most basic function of CleanMem (freeing memory), will 2.0 do anything that 1.7 will not do?

 

CleanMem itself is still set it and forget it, no changes where needed. Same as it always has been. The updates are all in the mini monitor in 2.0 besides changing the default run time from 30 to 15 min for CleanMem.

 

There was a small bug fix in cleanmem 2.0 where if a person had a ignore or only list that was longer than 255 chars it wouldn't get them all. That has been fixed.

 

Every feature in the mini monitor from 1.7.0 is in 2.0 and part of the free version plus some extra free new features.

 

Current change log is on the first post here

I didn't see that because Tom posted between me and you and you didn't quote me so I skimmed right past it. :)

 

I understand how CleanMem works so I was surprised to experience any issues. I'm currently testing the PC without it running and will report back. Is it possible that I don't have enough RAM for Windows 7 if something like CleanMem is constantly clearing out RAM? Then again, I thought CleanMem was ideal is for lower memory computers, so I'm at a loss at this point.

CleanMem helps the systems with little ram the most. I have cleanmem running every 15 min right now as I play dragon age 2 at max settings. and the game doesn't miss a beat.

 

I am confident that CleanMem is not the problem, but no one can know for sure. Perhaps its a combo of things. Only way to find out is to test one at a time :-)

My Acer Laptop has the same 1.25 GB RAM.

It has Dual Boot XP Home and W7 Ultimate.

Boot into XP and it is ready before I have put boiling water on my morning coffee.

Boot into W7 and I have time to prepare and eat a 3 course breakfast before W7 is ready to obey me.

 

I now have W7 Ultimate on a desktop with 4 GB RAM and it is VERY much faster.

Wow! My PC goes from pressing the power button to ready to use in about 30 seconds! Windows 7 is the fastest booting OS I've ever used.

I agree. On both my computers, they boot up very, very fast, I'd say even less than 30 seconds.

You can get the new setup on the first post on that thread.

 

Added a new pro feature in the advanced monitor. Fixed a bug I found and changed some more GUI settings.
