Agreed. Let the OS do what OS do.... manage resources.3rd party applications have no idea how memory is being used or what other applications do.
Unless they write some very impressive memory inspection software, the 3rd party app can only guess or blindly act. If someone did write something that was smart enough.... well, it would be part of the OS because that is what manages memory already.
That sir is a completely false and uninformed statement.
In reality it is in fact quite possible to identify and close down unnecessary applications. Programs doing exactly that have been around since the dawn of computing and are widely used by millions of people. I know, I have been one for them for a very long time. In reality programmers are
able to "write some very impressive memory inspection software " and have been doing it for decades. Stating that this is impossible does not change this fact. What it means is that you either are not aware of what skilled programmers are capable of doing or that you are aware of it, and make false statements anyways.
Here is an example of a 3rd party program that can identify and close down unnecessary applications :
Before engaging Gamebooster to shut down Print Spooler and other garbage, along with internet bandwidth hogs like "javaupdater" and such:Before engaging Gamebooster RAM usage is 1818 Mb.
After Gamebooster :By clicking a single button created by the skilled programmers who created and constantly maintain Gamebooster, 400 Mb of RAM is instantly freed up.400 Mb of RAM freed up that can now be used by your Game.Here is a list of about 50 more free programs to maximize your memory
. Most of these do in fact identify applications that are unnecessary for Gaming and automatically shut them down for you, thereby freeing up resources, primarily RAM, but some like Gamebooster also do other important things like shutting down internet bandwidth hogs.
