RamCleaner is a handy and useful app that frees up RAM space to help your computer run faster without interfering with your operating system.

When you buy a new computer, you might notice that it runs faster than your old model did. After few months of regular use, though, you'll often find that your computer slows down to a speed well below what you would like. Computers naturally slow down over time because of the apps and programs that you download, but your speed may also depend on the sites you visit and other factors, too. One of the best ways to increase your speed is with an app like RamCleaner that gives you more storage space.

RamCleaner has a basic user interface that provides you with all the information that you need upfront. Even if you have limited computer knowledge or experience, you can still get a handle on how to use this app in just a few minutes. When you run the app, it looks deep into your hard drive and determines the amount of RAM available. It then changes the location of each app and program, which changes the amount of memory and storage space each one requires.

Though running this app once will significantly increase your speed, you should run it more than once. RamCleaner lets you schedule a time for routine maintenance and a time for a future scan. You'll find it helpful to schedule a scan every week. Make sure that you pick a time when you won't be on your computer and when others won't use it, such as in the middle of the night. Scans can take a long time, and the app slows down other programs while it scans.

Running a weekly scan is helpful, but this app does not identify which closed programs and apps use more space when running. If you want to free up more space, you'll need to run multiple scans in the middle of the day and as you launch other programs on your computer. It is also worth knowing that RamCleaner only works with Windows Vista and higher operating systems. Mac and users of other Windows devices will need a different RAM cleaning tool. Most other users, though, will notice a significant increase in processing speeds after running this app.
