If your system is slight on RAM, it may become bogged down if a

O&O CleverCache Professional may help speed up your system,
freeing up that RAM for use by memory-hungry applications.
This is a set-and-forget application. Run O&O CleverCache,
and it automatically monitors your PC use and system cache. When it
detects that your cache holds data without reason, CleverCache
frees the data, giving you more RAM to run your programs.
O&O CleverCache has modules for reporting on system
information, including details about your hardware and operating
system configuration. It also monitors and graphs your processor
use, RAM use, system cache use, and hard disk use.
