      OK, for anyone who says it gives them a virus, they are just plain ignorant, this is just a simple code that is used by millions of server owners around the world to clear the memory cache. it does NOT delete or modify files or folders. All it does is delete the cache. And for those of you that cant work it, right click and select run as administrator

      It's not a virus. If you're using AVG, AVG will tell you it's a virus. You just need to make the ram_cleaner.vbs file an exception in AVG TOOLS and it'll work fine.

      If it tells you theres a virus ignore it, it just is annoyed its ending processes. You aren't downloading anything by typing it, so its not malicious software. Nothing external is coming into your computer, youre just telling you device to open up some RAM so you can do something else

      this code might get flagged by some antivirii, but do a little research and you will see it does what it says it does and is not a virus. i have a server for minecraft and when I ran it after rebooting i went from 766M free to 849M

      The code "FreeMem=Space(XXXXXXXX)" gives you a virus? What are you, ignorant o just plain stupid? "YouHacked"? It's more like "MyBrain'sHacked", if you ask me. Go bother somewhere else, you're embarrasing yourself here.
