Have you ever noticed that, after having Windows running for an hour or so, things slow down? You hear your hard disk running after every task ... it takes forever for programs to load ...? Windows does a poor job of memory management. Memory Zipper Plus frees the memory that Windows doesn't release, providing a continuous supply of RAM. It also repairs memory leaks, avoiding crashes and the "blue screen of death".

Memory Zipper Plus comes with a CPU cooler to save power, allowing your computer's CPU to cool in the idle time. It unloads unused DLL files from memory to conserve your system's resources. Memory Zipper Plus will defrag your system's RAM at the click of a mouse, or you can use its task manager to remove unused tasks (programs) or set their priorities.

I installed and ran Memory Zipper Plus. The installation was easy, and the user interface is clean and uncluttered. It took a little reading to understand how to setup the cache tuning features, but all the help I needed was available on the program's website. Of course, you can also allow Memory Zipper Plus to "auto-optimize". The program stays resident in the system tray, making it easily accessible with a right-mouse click.

All in all, Memory Zipper Plus is a good, solid program that performs well and takes up few system resources. Two difficulties I had were (1) English is a second language for the developer, and sometimes comprehension was difficult, and (2) customer support was lacking. Even at that, the program is good and so is the price. Give it a try!
