MemDefrag is another RAM optimization program. The software's user interface is clean and fairly easy to understand. There are five tabs across the top of the MemDefrag interface: RAM, Options, Fine Adjustment, Cache Tuning, and Registration. I've made a screen capture of the first tab. This shows how much of your RAM is used by your CPU and the amount of RAM still free. The icon in the taskbar is color-coded (green is acceptable, yellow is marginal, and red is in a danger zone. The options menu allows you to control the frequency of MemDefrag's monitoring and optimization of RAM, and whether MemDefrag loads on startup. The next two tabs control fine adjustments within MemDefrag. The last tab is, naturally, registration information.

Basically, in my experience, all RAM optimization programs do basically the same job. They defragment your RAM, leaving more free memory for your Windows-based programs. They also decrease the heat up of your processor by keeping its burden down.

MemDefrag is a good program at a reasonable price. You can try the shareware version for 30 days. If you have memory problems, give it a try.
