Came across this software from Metacafe. Supposed to increase physical RAM, defragment and optimise it. Does it really work and is it effective? Appreciate feedback.

I agree with Bob.

I'm not sure how software can "physically" increase RAM, because RAM is hardware and to increase it you need to add additional sticks.

Defragmenting RAM seems a little pointless to me. The Operating System, (OS), will use as much RAM as it needs, and will replace anything left in RAM by closed applications as and when it needs to.

Also, presumably this software needs to run continuously in the background, which of itself hits RAM and slows the OS down.

Personally I would let the OS manage RAM.
