Hi, my name is Dave Andrews. Today I'm going to talk to you about reclaiming computer memory. As your computer runs it uses up the memory that's in your computer and in some programs close, they might not release that memory officially back to the operating system. So we're going to run a program that will clean up the memory on your computer so that it will be reclaimed. Let's go to computer and in your Internet browser, we're going to do a search for a program called RAM Def which is a short name for RAM Defragmenter. Just type in RAM Def in the Google or your favorite search engine and you'll quickly find a website where you can go and download this program. After you have it downloaded, we're going to launch it and it's going to tell you, "it looks like it's the first time you're using the program". You want to customize the options. I'm just going to say no. And what is shown to me here, when the program appears is the amount of memory that's on my system and how much is available and how much is used. It's going to give me the option to reclaim some of the used memory that would otherwise have been lost and bring it back to my available memory. So let's run this, simply by clicking on start. As you can see my available physical memory has increase greatly because this program was able to find some memory that could be reclaimed and restore back to the operating system. My name is Dave Andrews and I've just told you how to reclaim computer memory.
