Windows Memory Diagnostic – added 12/19/2005

The Windows Memory Diagnostic tests the Random Access Memory (RAM) on your computer for errors. The diagnostic includes a comprehensive set of memory tests. If you are experiencing problems while running Windows, you can use the diagnostic to determine whether the problems are caused by failing hardware, such as RAM or the memory system of your motherboard. Windows Memory Diagnostic is designed to be easy and fast. On most configurations, you can download the diagnostic, read the documentation, run the test and complete the first test pass in less than 30 minutes.

StatBar – added 7/26/2003

StatBar provides a system status bar which allows you to quickly get an overview of your system’s condition including memory usage, CPU, uptime and more. It also includes a time synchronization feature, special support for WinAmp controls as well as a master volume control. StatBar is completely cusomizable, you can chose from several different color schemes (including XP style) and select the modules to display on the bar.

EZMem Optimizer – added 1/28/2006

EZMem Optimizer gives you a very simple Free RAM utility. Users that like simplicity, may indeed like this program. Just one click of a button – and in a few seconds your system recovers valuable RAM. It also shows realtime memory status, to check the difference before and after freeing RAM on your machine. This application has been optimized for a balance between RAM freed and system performance. Do not use the system while optimizing. We strongly recommend using the Light level of optimization.

Cacheman – added 5/3/2003
