No because they cause more trouble than they are worth.

All a memory optimiser does is push data out of the memory, which Windows will eventually end up loading back into the memory anyway. Therefore far from optimising anything, all you're doing is making the system work twice as hard to do one job.

The easiest solution, if you seriously believe you need to optimise your memory, is to buy more of the stuff. This might be more expensive but far better in the long run.

Check what type of ram you have. (ddr, SDRAM, etc)
Install Everest and do a hardware check if you dont know what kind you have

Check how much you have.
Right Click My COmputer, Go to properties... check the amount of ram

Open up the case and find the Ram slots
See how many slots there are and how much ram does each slot have.

Say there are 2 slots and there are 2 256MB RAM chips in there, it would up to 512Mb RAM. Now you want to double the Amount of ram for a good improvement although it's not mandatory. Double would eqyak 1024MBRAM or a gig.

Since you only got 2 slots you have to take one of the ram chips rom the slot out and install a 512 MB ram chip.
Same for the other one.
This brings the total RAM Upto 1024 MB ram.

Remember to buy ram from a reliable source like Tigerdirect or Factorydirect.
