Why let programs drain all your ram when there's lighter alternatives?Amiga500 said:I really do not understand this fascination with ram usage.You have extra ram so why not use it.?starchild76 said:Just installed the free zonealarm suite ( av + firewall ) , for the hay of it....
Its not light in any way on my system , it feels really heavy on system start up , opening up of chrome takes much longer too and the memory ussage : 54% - 67% so its really sucking the life out of my system : going to uninstall ASAP!!!! really , really dissapointed with this software
50-60% ram usage is nothing as you have 40% ram free doing nothing at all.
If you wish to only use a certain amount of ram then maybe you should purchase a machine with only 2gb of ram etc.
Even if I had a top of the line rig, I would still be picky with how much ram programs use
