I think from what you said that what you need is to reset the priorities for the game processes. However, if you are playing online, I suggest you be carefull. Giving special priorities to one process can effect other processes. Tools such as your resident AV and your FW shouldn't be hindered.

Do you have a good process viewer? Both of these will allow you to change the process priorities;

Do you control your startups? Most resources are wasted on most user's boxes because they let all the garbage they've DLed start @ boot.

http://www.iarsn.com/abpmon.html for AbpMon
http://www.outertech.com/index.php?_charisma_page=product&id=2 for Cacheman

AbpMon releases memory like nobody's business but Cachman is a very good programme too.

I use TweakAll's descriminating free mem when I'm running encoders that have mem leaks. Unfortunately, free mems probably wont solve his prob. If he has too many useless processes active, they will simply recapture the mem again almost immediately.

I think these pages will address his real prob;

Hello, mikey, yes, I agree. StartUp Inspector is a useful app. from http://www.windowsstartup.com/ or AutoStartViewer from http://www.diamondcs.com.au/index.php?page=asviewer

http://www.answersthatwork.com/TUT_pages/TUT_information.htmto help identify the running processes in Task Manager.

Also, memory is fairly cheap at the moment so may well be worth upgrading. Crucial is a good site to visit in this respect http://www.crucial.com/uk/index.asp?AID=5032920&PID=1280961

My apologies to everyone. Having just read the Forum rules, rather belatedly, I realise that I should not be offering advice without first receiving a Moderator's approval. Once again, sorry for this.

Hey bch, I don't think it's a prob. I can't speak for admin but I understand that the limits are in place mainly for the 'Spyware & Hijack Problems' forum section of the board.

I hope I'm right as I too am not sanctioned or on staff here and I often propose solutions here...just not in those criticle 'help' areas.

BTW I liked your posts. Smile

Mikey, you are correct.
Posting answers to hijackthis logs in the SpywareRemoval and HjackthisLog forums is restricted to approved Board Staff.
That rule is in place because we cannot take any chances on a users machine.
We have a training program in place, by which we check trainee posts before they are approved.
Once a trainee has proven that they are capable of handling most problems on their own, they are promoted to Trusted Warrior Advisors.

As far as the other Forums are concerned, posts can include general good advise from anyone knowledgeable enough to make a comment.
We try to read every post, and delete bad advice or plain old spamming from advertisers, but we can't guarantee to see everything (with our busy schedules) so if anyone sees anything which is too far out, please do not hesitate to PM me or another Admin.


Thanks Wink
