No and ram defragging is pretty much useless imo

 

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.

- Those "Recover Memory" programs sometimes use very odd "tricks" to "recover memory". But there's one program that's absolutely safe because it uses a feature in Windows itself. If you want to reduce memory usage (and that includes keeping the filecache small) then install PcWinTech's  Cleanmem.

Just to second this I use cleanmem, it works great but I don't think it "defrags" the RAM does it

- Agree. The user can't "defrag" the memory. Because memory usage is fragmented by design and memory management doesn't enable the user to manipulating the usage of the memory. Other than with a number of APIs available in Windows.

- The main program is started by Task Scheduler every 15 minutes. After "Cleaning" the memory it automatically closes. You can change the timing in Task Scheduler.

- Run "mini_monitor.exe". In that program you make changes about how the program behaves. make a shortcut to that file and place it on the desktop.
