"Clean the processes and the file cache."


CleanMem addresses memory leaking processes in order to improve the performance of your system. It works best for people who don’t have a lot of RAM memory on their PCs. The advantage of using this tool is very clear: you will never run out of memory for your applications. Memory will be reclaimed with CleanMem and memory hungry applications will certainly benefit from it. Let’s take a look at CleanMem and analyze its features to decide if it really is the tool it claims to be.


CleanMem is a lightweight tool with a setup kit that barely measure 1MB. As you would expect from such a small installation size, the installation is smooth and fast. The other advantage is that CleanMem is a portable tool that will occupy next to nothing on a modern flash drive. CleanMem doesn’t have any other programs or adware bundled with it and you would be pleased to know that it supports all of the available versions of Windows.


The interface of CleanMem is one of the tool’s main strengths. It looks great and has a professional flair to it. It is a simple interface that shouldn’t pose any problems to anyone in terms of usage. The main window boasts three tabs: General, Monitor Settings and Advanced Monitor. In here, you will find lots of settings that you can customize from the time the tool should check and clean the file cache to the appearance of the main window.


CleanMem is very efficient in the process of saving that valuable RAM memory and in this regard, it doesn’t move the files to the page file. The Windows API to compact processes in memory is used. This method is the one that is preferred in the RAM optimization software. It is faster, more efficient and the Windows code is utilized. Another great feature of CleanMem is that you can choose which processes should be handled by the tool. You can tweak them such as how often you want and include them for optimization at the desired time intervals. The output logs that are generated are of great help and you will find them most useful to see the ‘before’ and ‘after’ cleanup statistics. What is more, CleanMem can be installed and simply be left alone, so as to speak. It begins working immediately without any configuration from your part. Of course, configuration is possible as stated above.


Be sure to put CleanMem on the exceptions list in your antivirus software as some of them may detect it as a virus. There’s nothing to worry about that though as you can see from our latest antivirus test for CleanMem.


Alternatives to CleanMem include Glary Utilities, Advanced SystemCare Free, Minimem, jv16 PowerTools, SlimCleaner and many more registry tools you can find with a simple search. Some of these tools offer more features than others. CleanMem is designed for home users and people who don’t want to spend much time with a memory cleaner.


All in all, CleanMem is a good tool that will surely improve the performance of your system and save your computer’s memory. The tool runs quietly in the background and it doesn’t require any fancy configuration work from your part so even your 70 year old grandmother can use it!
