What exactly is Ram Saver Pro?
According to Fred Langa, third party ram release programs circumvent proper ram control by the operating system and are less than worthless as they can even cause problems to occur.
XP will utilize all available ram for system processes when other aps aren't using it and forcing aps and processes out of ram will make them over utilize the page file or even fail.
Excerpt from Langalist:
"Dear Fred From a very grateful subscriber to your Plus edition...
I refer to your http://langa.com/newsletters/2004/2004-11-29.htm#9
edition and the subject of Memory Optimizers, which you suggest are scams etc. I use FreeRam XP Pro - which is a totally free utility - hardly a scam to start with ! I have a full 1024 MB of ram fitted and when I first start using the computer daily, it usually shows between 695 and 710 MB i.e. 68% Ram free."
It's a confusing subject, Geoff--- one made more so by the purveyors of "memory optimizers," some of whom are themselves confused, and others of whom *want* you to be confused so you'll use their products.
Here's the problem: With most computer things that can be "used up" (hard drive space, bandwidth, etc.) you want as much to be *un*used as possible. But it's just the opposite with RAM, because unused RAM is wasted RAM.
That's worth repeating, because it's the central point: Unused RAM is wasted RAM.
Thus, any tool that "frees up" RAM or "creates holes in RAM" or any similar thing is really creating a pool of unused--- wasted!--- RAM.
You see, your RAM is the fastest memory your PC has. Memory operations in RAM operate at nanosecond speeds (billionths of a second), six orders of magnitude faster than the millisecond speeds (thousandths of a second) of memory operations written to a hard drive, as "virtual memory" in the PC's swapfile.
"Freeing RAM" means you're taking data and code out of the fastest memory your system has and transferring it to the swapfile on disk, which is the *slowest* memory your system normally has. That doesn't help you. In fact, it slows you down!
Windows does a pretty good job of keeping your RAM more or less optimally full, *which is the way you want it* because you WANT as much stuff as possible kept in the fastest-available storage. When RAM gets too full, Windows correctly dribbles out the least-used and least-important code and data to the slower hard-drive storage of virtual memory; and that too is just what you want.
"Memory optimizers" can actually reverse this process so that you end up with unused areas in your best and fastest memory; and tons of code and data shifted to your worst and slowest memory (on the hard drive). In other words, they can do the exact opposite of what they claim; slowing you down, not speeding you up!
There's still more to the topic, but to save space, let me point you to a fuller explanation, including the possible rare exceptions to the above: http://www.informationweek.com/story/showA...icleID=17200583
But for the overwhelming majority of users, for the overwhelming majority of the time, memory optimizers are junk."
I would try uninstalling the "Ram Saver Pro" and see if your problem clears up. If it doesn't - you may have other things causing your system to overextend such as malware or other hardware problems.
