    Optimize my RAM?

    I have XP, and while RAM optimizers are effective in freeing up ram memory, I'd rather like to be able to assign certain programs more ram than others, so that they'd run smoothly (for instance, I don't want pivot having the same amount of RAM as flash)
    Any help?

    You can set the priority over certain processes with the windows process manager...

    That's kind of natural. Programs don't split up all your RAM evenly among themselves. Unless there's a memory leak in the program, pivot wouldn't use as much RAM as Flash. Most programs (with the exception of a few NORTON ANTIVIRUS >_> should only use as much RAM as they need.

    So yeah, I don't see the point of that kind of program. You could do what Nev said, but I've tried setting the priority higher for certain programs, but I've never really seen a difference.

    I know that programsd should use as much ram as they need, but they don't. And the ram optimizers I've used say I have 50% of unused ram or more all of the time, when programs like flash or FL studio lag when I have messenger and firefox opened also.

    This shouldn't happen seeing as I have >2 gigs of ram, and no viruses.
