Sometimes free software just doesn't get the job done. Please post and comment on about any type non-music software you purchased so your TB brethren can benefit from your experience. One rule: Please do not post about free software and discuss how you think it's better than what's posted here. There's already a thread for that. As far as comparing paid software, have at it. Here are a few key items that you might consider cutting/pasting for your post: Name: Manufacturer: Type: Website Social Media Date purchased: Version No. Platform: PC Mac Other: Price: Replaced free software name: Other: Comments: I'll start: Name: MemoKit Type: Utility - RAM optimizer and editor Manufacturer: Software Benefits, Inc. Website MemoKit Plus - Computer memory manager and optimizer, virtual memory and cache optimizer Date purchased: 2002 Version No. 4.8 (older version) Platform: PC Price: around $25 Replaced free software name: Window standard memory utility Comments: I still use it today. I had a computer back in 2002 that ran Windows ME and needed to stabilize it. MemoKit allowed me real-time and time sequenced access to RAM and helped me solve all the problems I was having. You have to know what you're doing to use the RAM application terminate function. I researched all the various programs in RAM one by one until I understood what could not be terminated. The taskbar icon indicates by color how much free memory you have. Very helpful. Also recovers and frees up RAM. I haven't upgraded to the new subscription/update process yet. You can still get it with a one time payment for a year but updates after the year require a subscription.
