Ram Cleaner For Windows – Do They Really Work?
Are you get wearied with insufficient RAM in windows and get board using the RAM cleaner tool for freeing up it? If yes, then you have to know, is the RAM cleaning tool really works or not? This article is made to give you knowledge about the matter. You just follow below and solve the important queries just spending a few times.
Know Windows Ram Cleaner
FIRSTLY KNOW HOW RAM WORKS?
To make the write and exchange processes, the operating system uses both the RAM and storage inside your hard drive. The latest operating systems mostly which are released in the last ten years get the smart RAM management system to cache processes and use the full power of the physical RAM and the virtual RAM that stored in the storage of the hard drive.
Almost every active process written in Physical RAM because Physical RAM is high-speed. The passive processes are transferred in the hard drive storage to keep more RAM free to tackle because the hard drive storage is very slow.
The time when you use your PC, the Operating system continuously moving less important processes (passive ones) to virtual RAM or you can say slower memory and freeing up actual RAM or you can say faster memory for important process or active work. Furthermore, your OS caches less important processes to free up RAM for essential operations.
For bringing the Task Manager, you press Ctrl + Shift + Esc keys in Windows and move to the “Performance“ tab to see all the details regarding RAM. The Mac OS X users press Command + Shift + Escape, and open “Activity Monitor” and see the RAM usage in the “Memory” section.
HOW DID YOU KNOW THAT THE RAM ACTUALLY WORK IN REAL TIME?
To know your RAM work in Realtime or not just do the following steps:
Firstly, open two tabs in your browser with a separate website on them, for example, on one, www.digitechind.in, and on the other your email service. Next, minimize the browser and do anything on your PC, and thereafter, open the File Manager and move 2-3 folders to another location. Then, after 10-15 seconds come back and try to switch between the tabs again. You will see the “processing icon“ just next to your mouse cursor (it’s a blue circle in Windows).
The operating system is moving operations from the virtual RAM to the physical RAM that showed by this 1-3 seconds process. Actually, the RAM management system in all the latest operating systems is good enough and should not demand intervention from third-party tools.
NOTE: THE DELAY WOULD BE TOO SMALL AND SOMETIMES UNNOTICEABLE IF YOU HAVE AN SSD INSTEAD OF HDD.

KNOW HOW WINDOWS RAM CLEANER TOOLS WORK?
Nearly always RAM cleaning tools shift all the processes to virtual RAM and clear the physical RAM cache to free up the RAM. When one says the RAM cleaning tool to free up RAM, it put more pressure on the physical RAM, and the operating system thinks that the tool requires too much RAM. Thus, to achieve that, this moves all the other processes to virtual RAM.
That time when the cleaning tool is sure that all the processes have been transferred to virtual RAM it will stop putting the pressure and show you it has freed so much RAM. It will delete all the cached data inside the physical RAM in the same process.
Below are two tests which you can try to clarify the process:
TEST 1: The Memory Optimizer, ‘Glary Utilities‘ can free up to 90% of the total RAM. So, here the first test made with it. The RAM usage was 78%-84% at the time of the experiment, your’s may another. After clicking on the ‘Optimize‘ for freeing up RAM, the tool starts using 99%-100% of the RAM, and after 4-5 seconds it stops using the RAM and my RAM usage went down to 23%.
Once it was done, all the opened programs in our PC got stuck and that took 5 to 7 seconds to again work.
TEST 2: The second test is the same as above but here on our Windows PC the “pagefile.sys“ has disabled, which means the virtual RAM disabled completely. After pressing the ‘Optimize‘ button to free up the RAM, it starts using 100% of the RAM of our PC, and in less than 2 seconds our PC crashed with a blue screen of death.
The virtual RAM was not available so that happened, the pressure turns into our PC crashing because Windows had nothing left to send the other processes.
WHERE RAM CLEANING TOOLS WORK?
When you freeing up RAM it helps to take care of programs with memory leak issues. the memory leak issue stands for, that memory is allocated to certain programs but it is not used by the program or released upon the program. That memory cannot be flushed by the operating system.
To get back, you just restart the PC or use a RAM cleaning tool.
That would be a memory leak if your PC’s RAM is filled even when there are no programs or processes running.
RAM CLEANER OR RAM MANAGERS WHICH IS GOOD?
You may think that many windows memory (ram) cleaners such as CleanMem, Memory Cleaner, or Wise Memory Optimizer easily speed up the PC, but I must say it is not true, these programs one named, CleanMem is not RAM cleaning tool. These are the RAM manager that works alongside the Windows built-in memory management system.
Those tools force Windows to stop moving current passive processes to virtual memory (pagefile.sys). Alternatively, move them to cache inside the RAM as ‘Standby‘ processes.
Consequently, These tools helpful for speeding up the PC as the passive processes are being read now from the cache as an altar of the virtual memory.
The tool called, CleanMem will speed up the PC definitely. If you running on low RAM, the CleanMem will help you, but also one thing keep in mind that memory cleaner tools will focus on moving the processes to virtual memory, that absolutely not good for the PC.
