Cleanmem memory manager

Recommended Posts

Please copy paste the url presented above, also to our less skilled readers, this should be considered a beta and not for general download.

 

Shane can I delete old files from system32 (cleanmem_ignore_list.txt, cleanmem_log_settings.txt cleanmem_only_list.txt) as they are now stored in CleanMem.ini? Also, what is "CleanMem.exe.manifest" and do I need it?

 

Yes those text files are no longer needed. they can be deleted. This version is the release candidate. No one finds any problems then this is the version to go out :-)

 

The manifest file tells vista and windows 7 to run cleanmem with admin rights.

Good to hear :-)

 

New settings gui is working good for you?

I have it set to do two things when you click finish.

 

1st. it saves all the settings to the CleanMem.ini file in the same dir.

2nd. it checks the system 32 dir for CleanMem.exe, if it is there it copies the CleanMem.ini to the system32 dir.

 

The system32 dir is used for the task scheduler (The task scheduler runs cleanmem from there). There are people who use cleanmem on a thumb drive, or who don't use the task scheduler. By checking for cleanmem.exe in the system 32 dir it avoids copying the ini file when it isn't needed :-)

I'll bet you had no idea what you were starting when you came here Shane. :)

 

It's a great thread with a lot of readers over a relatively short time. (2238 and counting)

1. I noticed something interesting. I ran Defraggler (DF) a number of times and watched carefully Windows Taskmanager at the same time.

-- ran DF (hit ""Analyze"") and memory use went up to - at least - 31 Mb and it used at one time even over 41 Mb.

-- When DF had finished analyzing a drive memory usage went down to about 22 Mb.

-- ran Cleanmem and (according to the CM log) memory usage was a low as some 125 kb.

-- within seconds memory usage increased to about 1.5 Mb. So, it seems DF thinks that it simply needs at least that amount of memory to function properly.

 

2. The last line gives me a clue what could have happened on Aethec's computer with Firefox and CM. This suggests that Firefox inmediately claimed again all the memory that it previously has been occupying. Something like: ""Plenty of memory available, so I'll claim a significant amount (again)"".

I downloaded Defraggler today. (thanks willy2 for making me aware of it) love the app by the way.

As DF was moving one of my vmware files (20 gb) to the end of the hard drive DF memory usage was about 175 mb. I ran cleanmem and the memory didn't move. Because all the memory in DF was in use.

 

After the file move DF did a good job lowering and went back down to 20 mb or so. Then cleanmem took it down to 2 mb while it was moving small files.

 

DF does a good job cleaning up after itself. Some things are impossible to clean up. A least for me with vb. That's where I think cleanmem comes in and helps DF.

 

Point is, from one programmer to another, thumbs up for good programming and the cleaning up DF does :-)

I hope you guys don't mind, but I am looking for feedback as I make CleanMem 2.0

 

CleanMem itself will stay free as always and will still be set it and forget it. The mini monitor will be a free/pro version that I will sale for $4.99

 

And most importantly, EVERYTHING in CleanMem 1.7.0 will also be in 2.0 and still be free. It doesn't feel right to take away features from user ;)

 

I have details on the new version here

http://forums.pcwintech.com/index.php/topic,1781.msg10583.html

 

And here is a screen shot as the program looks so far as of today. (I will also attach the screen shot)

Anyone want to help me beta test ;)

 

Also I haven't got to much feedback yet. So any comments are welcome.

CleanMem 2.0 Release Candidate is ready for testing!

 

Download links and change log is here.

http://forums.pcwintech.com/index.php/topic,1781.0.html

 

I will have people test this through this week and make the final release in a week if all goes well.

 

The pro version can be bought now. I will be setting up the shopping cart in a few min. This is pretty much what the program will be when released (unless any bugs are found). Only it is hard for me to test everything. And I don't want to release it then have to put out updates right away ;)

 

Please let me know what you think of the new version and if I did good on it. Need to keep my users happy :-)

Hey shane, I downloaded the new version, and when I opened up the settings it still reads 1.7.

 

I just updated the setup, found a small spelling problem lol. Good at math, horrible at spelling lol. The misspelling in the code kept one part from working. Thats now fixed.

 

The setup should replace all the cleanmem files except for your settings. can you post a screen shot for me?

 

I am also writing the guide on all the features now as we speak. Should have it done soon.

Wow, very strange thing on my computer. I installed it for 64 bit OS, but it put in in \program files(x86)\ but I also have a version in \program files\

 

very baffling. Seems the one in \Program Files(x86)\ is the new version.

Just finished the help file for it and what options are in the new version.

 

Hope you like it :-)

 

http://www.pcwintech.com/cleanmem-help

 

And yes CleanMem is 32 bit, the only reason for the 64 bit option is so the setup knows which system32 dir to put cleanmem in for the task scheduler :-)

 

I also found a bug in the advanced monitor rules and updated the setup. So you may want to reinstall with the new setup.

Hello Shane,

 

Just started using CleanMem, and it is a brilliant little program. Only problem is that the 2.0 RC portable version's link is broken.
