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!
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.
