    I know the way to free up RAM is by using programs like Cachman etc. This frees up RAM even while you are online.

    But how do you free up the other resources without rebooting?

    Most of the members here feel the 3rd party programs to free RAM...are not useful/not required as Windows itself handles RAM better. :rolleyes:

    BTW, check this great link to know more about System Resources -
