I've been experimenting with a memory freeing program that seems to work quite well. After I run several programs and applications at once I can then free up a lot of memory without having to reboot. However, for some reason, the CPU usage meter still shows that the CPU is still being used a great deal (40-50%) as if I still had all of those programs engaged--this after I closed them all down. Is there a way to "free up" or get the CPU usage back to normal without having to reboot?

Since posting the original on the CPU usage "problem," the CPU usage meter shows low-percentage reading. There must have been a glitch or something when i noticed the meter much higher.

Can you tell me anything about "clearing the clipboard" as well as the "create ram cut"? I'm using FreeRam XP Pro if you're familiar with it.

Personally I am not a big believer in the ram freeing programs. I am not sure what you mean by "clearing the clipboard" as well as the "create ram cut". Is that an option in the program?

Yes, they're options in the program. I have no idea either. I'll have to "google it" and see what might come up on those two things. I still find myself having to reboot only a little less often than usual with this memory freeing thing. I might do just as well with system monitor or something.
