Optimize memory for running programs

Optimize memory for running programs

Initially developed for Firefox only, Minimem now can reduce the memory footprint of any application. It runs in the background and can be set up to optimize as many proceses as you'd like, using a very intuitive graphical interface. Unlike other memory optimization tools, it gives you full control over what applications you want to optimize, when and how often.

It optimizes memory by removing as many non-necessary memory pages as possible from the selected processes. It does so at regular intervals which can be user-defined as well and every 30s by default. This then optimizes your applications which can load those pages back whenever they need, and makes your overall system perform much better whenever it is memory limited.

Typical applications are:

* Reducing the memory footprint of memory-heavy applications that should not e.g. web browsers or office applications
* Making it easier to run applications with memory leaks, e.g. Firefox 2 or extremely large footprints e.g. Firefox 3
* Running multiple applications on the same computer e.g. web desktop tool, web browser, office application all concurrently
* Use computers that are not so recent with modern applications
* And many more...

Minimem in principle should support all Windows versions, though it is only tested on Windows XP 32 bits SP3.

Click below to download the Minimem installer. Also note Minimem requires the version 2.0 of the .NET framework to be installed on your computer (automatic with XP and Vista; has to be done by you for older versions; the Minimem installer will help you a bit with this).
Minimem (version 1.0): download .

If you are looking for a portable version of Minimem to e.g. run off an external drive, then just use the minimem.exe file the installer will place in the install folder (called minimem): this .exe does not rely on anything from the installer so this should work just fine.
Just launch the installer after you saved it on disk or launch directly from the link. The install process is straighforward and you can launch Minimem from the Windows Start menu once done with the installation.

And a last note: Minimem is a freeware, i.e. is free to use for any pusonal purpose; a more complete license agreement is available from the installer. If you'd like to use it for a professional purpose, this can certainly be arranged though is not provisionned for in our default license terms so please do contact us in such case.
