How to use less ram (for Windows users)

This might help you increase your computer speed.

1. Start any application i.e. Internet, Microsoft Word etc.
2. Press Ctrl+Shift+Esc to open Windows Task Manager.
3. Click the processes tab and sort the list in descending order by clicking Memory Usage.
4. You should notice that the application you are using should be around at the top somewhere. Using a couple of MBs of memory.
5. Now switch back to the application and minimize it. (The one with the line on it in the top right hand corner)
6. Now go back to Windows Task Manager and see where you application is listed.
7. Most likely it will not be at the top. But rather, near the bottom of the list.
8. Now check out the ram it is using.

Surprised??? Minimizing each application that you are currently not working on by clicking the Minimize button (Not just switching windows via the bottom taskbar) you can reduce how much Ram you are using substantially. Depending on the number of applications you use together and how much Ram you have, the difference can be as much as 50% of extra Ram.

Interesting, Yes if you download Spybot Search and Destroy it will have features that can block any unwanted Startup applications if you have programs that open on startup like your virus protection etc that you do not want to it can block it. You can download Spybot from Here

This is a free program that is rated one of THE best for Spyware and Adware detection and removal.
