I was just wondering if anyone had any experience with memory enhancement software? I just got my comp back from a major virus infection and while going through performance software I came across Memokit. I did a little research and then tryed it under a 30 risk free. The program looks very basic but I question if it is even doing anything. It shoes targeted memory and a couple other gauges but there releivnce is foreign to me. Wondering if anyone knows anything more specific about the program or are its claims of 150% faster a gimic. Any info would be great.

IMO, none are worth 2 cents . They all do the same thing by swapping memory. Windows does it more efficiently. I have tried several, and the real answer to a memory problem is more memory.
Spike's advice: Backup your data routinely.

In order for the memory enhancement software to run it has to load itself into memory - so there's an extra chunk of memory that's gone!

Next, if there's a problem with your memory management - then, in XP at least, there's a problem with the programs that you're using. XP's memory management is quite able to handle managing your memory (unless a program is misbehaving).

In that case, remove the program and no more memory problem! :thumbsup:

2 asides here:
1) I recently had a memory problem with FireFox. I bit the bullet and kept it on my system anyway. Had to close and open FireFox regularly - but it stopped the memory problem temporarily (and, I've got 2 gB of RAM, so I'm not hurting for memory).
2) Win98 had a memory problem that could be helped by these tools - but I've seen no need for them since then.
