Sometimes my system seems slower after recovering RAM... why?

If you have your "Target" level of RAM to recover set too high, MemOptimizer may reclaim memory from the file cache, or flush system DLLs (such as the shell and OLE) out of memory. When you flip to an application that needs these, they must be paged back in. Try setting your Target level to a lower level. Note that for games that do not use much of the operating system, a higher Target level is better, since more memory will be available to the game. Remember that too much free RAM is as good as RAM in your desk drawer: nice to own but unused! A good compromise takes a while to discover, but that's why we give you the control to adjust it!
