Is there a good program to clean paging file?

by StevenDilley / May 28, 2012 10:03 PM PDT

Hello friends,

Does anyone know of a program to clean the paging file? Like when I started my computer it's usually at 230/2178M, but later it remains at least 850, even if I close all my programs. (Not a memory cleaner)

Best regards

No need to clean it when Windows is running. And, as you see, it's cleaned by a reboot. That's perfect. Nothing more to be done.
