Hallo, Excuse me I am lost, I have not been able to identify which file to download. Could you kindly help me? Thank you.

Highly useful and necessary for machines with limited RAM. Run this in the system tray at all times to continually monitor RAM usage - when things slow down, a quick glance shows why - a couple of clicks to clean the memory and that usually speeds things up again.

Yes, truly a lifesaver. Been using it for some time now, since my 4GB only laptop started struggling with modern day resource hog browsers... I have upgraded RAM but just kept using it.

I just happened to stumble upon this app because I was viewing the author's site. What a lifesaver! Really works! Can't believe I didn't know about this app sooner!

Glad v3.3.4 fixes a pesky WinXP bug introduced in previous version...;-)

FWIW, the solution to starting minimized is to use the command line option "/minimized" (no quotes) in the shortcut properties.

@ollie: author has a github site if you want to post about that:

v3.3 seems to have removed the option to start minimized. Setting it to run minimized in the shortcut doesn't work. Window opens at every startup. Very annoying.

I could not reproduce this using WinRAR 5.40 (64-bit) on Windows 8.
