Came across this interesting article (thanks GOOGLE):
Win 7 memory usage on my laptop is very interesting. The CM system tray icon show the amount of used memory (by hardware & programs/processes). When CM is kicked into action then info is moved from the green part of the memory to the brown and the dark blue part of the memory (See picture in the attachment). And the dark blue part of the memory doesn't shrink.
Since the CM program will be detected by Superfetch one would expect CM to be loaded into the dark blue part of the memory. But since I (more often than not) need to press the CM "hot key" twice to kick CM into action it would suggest that CM isn't loaded in memory anymore or has been overwritten (in memory). Possible solution for this problem: Regularly delete the file "layout.ini" in the Superfetch subfolder in "C:\windows" (E.g. Upon start up). It would prevent Win 7 to load a lot of obsolete files/info into memory.
Perhaps CM can be improved/updated to clean the dark blue (see picture, attachment) part of the memory of my laptop as well ?

Hmmmm... This is why I want CCleaner to clean ALL the superfetch folder entries. Yes, Windows has to re-create entries when launching a program. And yes, I don't mind getting rid of them because what good is it to preload malware/viruses/old programs you never use?
Clean, clean, clean!!!! LOL!!!

@Superfast: Ccleaner indeed can take care of deleting the "layout.ini"file. Should have thought of it before. But windows uses "recent folders" to add folders & files to "layout.ini". So, one should clean "recent folders" as well.
CM v2.4.3 still has another small tiny (!!) bug. See page #5 of this thread:
I hope the next improved version of CM will be released very soon.
