My friend just confirmed that the new exe is no longer crashing on his system :-)

 

I will be getting 2.0.1 ready for release.

 

Man I hate doing this to people, make an update so quick. But I want the stuff working right :-)

CleanMem v2.0.2 Released.

http://www.pcwintech.com/cleanmem

 

v2.0.2

Added "Reset Window Positions" option to context menu.

Multiple GUI tweaks and fixes.

Fixed minor bug where the mini monitor wouldn't hold its startup position in some cases.

Program now remembers the screen position of the settings windows and others. The reset mini monitor position will also reset these windows as well.

Window positions are now saved under the Current User Reg keys. This has multiple benefits. If a person runs the mini monitor from a thumb drive and on multiple computers, the position will be saved on each computer instead of the ini file. This also lets different users on the same system have the monitor in different positions than the other users.

Fixed bug where the Page File information on the Memory Info Window didn't detect on Windows 7.

Page file info on the memory info window has been updated to pull better information. Such as actual current usage of the page file on the disk.

Fixed bug where the mini monitor didn't always exit & close.

CleanMem v2.0.3 is released.

 

On a side note,

Hope you guys dont mind me posting this here. But I just made a new program, took me only a few hours today.

Mainly because I cheated lol

 

I took the cleanmem mini monitor code, ripped out everything I didn't need and made this new monitor. Saved me TONs of work not having to recode all the same stuff over again.

 

It is a monitor to show the current read and write speed of your hard drive.

Since the drive is the bottle neck of performance, knowing when your drive is under a load is good to know.

 

I just finished this, no page for it yet as I want it tested. If you try it please email me any problems you have. Otherwise after a day or two to make sure nothing is broken I will release it by Sunday :-)

 

Give it a quick try :-)

 

Not bad for a few hours of work I hope.

It hooks to the performance monitor in windows. Under physical drive and uses _Total.

It shows what the current read and write speed is on the drive, so if nothing is reading or writing to it will show 0 bytes.

Try doing a defrag with the monitor open and let me know :-)

Some people are getting confused thinking the program shows the actual max speed of the drive, it doesn't, it shows the read and write it is currently using.

So I have updated the setup, grab the new one.

 

Also here is some more info on it.

Thanks again guys.

That's exactly what I did to test it ;)

 

Your explanation of how it works twigged a memory though that explains WHY its not working, a long while back I disabled Windows performance monitors. Just re-enabled the disk monitor and your program is working fine. Not sure I have any use for it but interesting all the same.

Good to know! I need to make sure to put that on the page when the program is done for other users :-)

 

I have a use for it, main reason why I made it lol.

When my system is sluggish and my cpu and memory are fine, I have to look at the hard drive light on my system to see it working away.

I wanted to see how much was being done when that happens. So for me it serves a good purpose :-)

 

It will be a free app and there for people who need it :-)

Surely in that situation knowing WHAT is keeping the hard drive busy is what you need to know though rather than how busy it is, or am I, as I suspect, missing the point :D

 

(PS I only said I don't have a need for it, don't doubt others will have :) )

For me it is the indicator that I need to look deeper :-)

Haven't looked if Windows vista or 7 lets me pull thats processes using the drive, I know it doesnt in XP.

 

But at least if I see the drive being bogged down I know to start looking. And normally something using that much drive speed your going to know which app it is :-)

 

Also helps in seeing a drive going bad as the drive will run slower and slower.

So when you see the speeds never getting where they use to you know it is time to get a new drive.

Updated the new program. I know this is a thread about cleanmem. Sorry :-)

I wont post about the new program again till it is released LOL

http://forums.pcwintech.com/index.php/topic,1909.0.html

 

New compact bar mode.

You can now set the color settings between the 2 bars instead of just 1.

System tray icon now has color indicator.

 

If the program doesn't pull the drive speed make sure you haven't disabled the performance monitor in windows :-)

Enjoy!

CleanMem v2.1.0

http://www.pcwintech.com/cleanmem

 

v2.1.0

(All changes in this version are for both Free & Pro versions.)

Moved system up time from the bottom of the window to the top menu. There a user can now decide how the program will pull the system up time. Default is GetTickCount API (49 Days Max) the other is by the Windows Performance Counters (No Max). The reason for the 2 options is for users who have disabled their performance counters and do not wish to turn them back on.

GetTickCount counts since system boot and includes suspends/hibernation time as well, but has the limit of going up to 49 days.

The performance counter only counts as windows is running and doesn't during suspends/hibernation, but doesn't have the 49 day limit.

Added new option to disable the bar fill graphic. This is for the users who want the monitor to be just pure text. Such as when using blending mode into the desktop.

Added new compact mode for the mini monitor. This will hide the text and the make the bar 50% smaller. Making a very nice small monitor that stays out of the way.

Add some pre made compact bar graphics to the setup.

Added new mini monitor start with windows options. You can now set the mini monitor to run at system startup for the current user or all users.

Please don't fall (further?) into the trap of putting every download site's so-called 'awards' on your website, sort of thing you expect on tacky less reputable software sites and is the sort of thing that puts people off IMO

When I let Windows manage the paging file, CM routinely lowered the RAM usage to ~19%. However, since I set the paging file to 16-1000 MB, CM typically clips RAM utilization to ~33%.

 

What may account for the disparity?

I dont totally agree on that one. Majorgeeks (Good friends of mind) and some of the other download sites have very good reputations, and when they take the time to look at a program and make sure it is worth it then it actually looks good to show that. I never heard of bad software showing off awards (Unless they where fake)

 

Now if I was listing crap awards from crap sites then I would agree. But sites like majorgeeks.com have my respect and I am happy to show any award from them :-)

Keep in mind CleanMem doesn't force the memory to be cleaned out a processes. Only the memory marked as no longer is use is freed up. So you may have a program that is simply using and marking more memory in use.

 

Now Windows does keep some of the memory in the page file no matter what. So when you lowered the page file it may just be Windows keeping more in actualy memory instead. (I have 8gb of ram and have my page file off and so I have higher memory usage, about 1.7 GB in use at all times)

I agree with you on Majorgeeks (and Softpedia for that matter, though do you need three site's "Download is clean" badges) but Brothersoft is hardly well regarded (to put it politely), the so-called "Editors Picks" are meaningless unless the site has actually reviewed them, rather than handed out to all and sundry just as a means to direct traffic to their site.

 

But hey, it's your site, was just something that I thought was verging towards making it look a bit dodgy when we all know its nothing of the sort :)
