I have had auto runs for some time now but only used it for a diagnosis;ON/OFF then ON again.
My problem is apparently I am using to much RAM to run the programs I need with out stalling or freezing. So I thought I could free alot of RAM with AUTORUNS?????????? Is this true? And when I stop a service in AUTORUNS,if I need it later how do I get it going again?Do i just uncheck a box and thats it? Or should I be stopping these services another way? I am just trying to free up memory so I can use what I use which is not really that much but I am having a problem & I am pretty sure I have way to much stuff running in the background/@ startup. I tried to search for some specific info but came up short, usualy I find it right away here.

You can do whatever you like...with any tool...but that does not mean that tool was created for any purpose outside those clearly expressed, described, and recommended.

If you need more RAM, you should add more RAM...not try to force a given tool to do things it was never designed for. Just my opinion.

Thanks for the help,but you really didn't answer anything I asked. I do understand that if I need more RAM I should install it! But I don't believe I do, I think I just have so much stuff running in the background that I have never used and most likely never will. I was asking if the AUTORUNS TOOL is the tool I should be using for the task. And I was hoping to get a informative answer, so if you or any one has the answer it would be greatly appreciated.
