    XP will always attempt to find some use, anything that might potentially be of some benefit, for every bit of the installed RAM rather than letting it sit there idle and going to rot. And just as soon as some better use comes along for any of that RAM then Windows will instantaneously drop the more trivial usages so as to free up whatever is required. Free RAM should more properly be referred to as useless RAM-- because that is what it is, RAM for which Windows has so far been totally unable to find any use for.

    So, IMO first thing he should do on his next update on his OptimizeXP page is to gid rid of the Cacheman. either he wants to remove it from his XP system or not! if he also use it himself.

    Another thing is about the Chkdsk exists on this OptimizeXP page-- as one of a step or a tool for OptimizingXP ??
    It's probably just me, IMO it's pabably best to let the XP do its own thing, first. if he is using NTFS,
    under normal conditions he does not need to run Chkdsk manually.

    And also, IMO i think that site is still missing one page-- BackupXP.htm,
    reason for this is he has already have 'Chkdsk' and some utilities that removes files / registry and things in Windows.

    It's probably just me and my english and i don't read the whole thing on that site. :)

    then i strongly suggest you start learning and to know more about XP.
    perhaps starting by getting rid of the Cacheman.
