Many tasks that can be performed on PC’s these days require you to close all currently running programs. For example, almost every installer asks you to close all other applications to minimize conflicts and to avoid replacing in-use files. Other high-end tasks, such as burning CDs and defragmenting or scanning hard drives can slow down or even fail when other processes ‘kick in’, like background programs, the screen saver or a scheduled task.

Of course, you could manually close each program one by one, disable the screen saver…, but that is where Smart Close comes in. Smart Close will automatically close all running programs, disable the screen saver and halt all other processes that can interrupt without asking.

But what when the task is finished and you want to restore everything that was disabled by Smart Close? Restart the computer? No, because before Smart Close closes or disables anything, it will save the current state of the system (running programs, screen saver…) to a ‘system snapshot’, that can be opened and restored again later.

Features:

  • Two wizards: the Close Programs wizard, for closing all the programs, and the Restore wizard, to restore a system snapshot. Both provide an intuitive and clear interface, and assist you step by step.
  • Thanks to its Smart Close-technology, most programs can be properly closed, so that the program can still save its settings and return memory and resources to the system.
  • In the rare cases that a program can’t be properly closed, Smart Close can use SmartKill to kill the program. Still, all the memory and resources used by the program will be freed.
  • If you don’t want a program to be closed or killed by Smart Close, you can add it to a list of ‘Protected Programs’.
  • Besides closing programs, Smart Close also closes Explorer and Internet Explorer windows and saves their current location, so they can be restored properly later.
  • Disables and restores the screen saver.
  • On modern Windows versions, Smart Close stops and restarts Windows services that can interrupt other processes, such as the Task Scheduler. On Windows 9x/Millennium, the Task Scheduler can also be disabled and re-enabled.
  • And finally, you get all of these features for free. SmartClose is 100% freeware without any nag screens, trial periods, ads, spyware etc.

CleanMem keeps memory use in check on the system without the memory being pushed to the page file. This in turn keeps the system running smoother. CleanMem itself is totally free. When you install CleanMem it will auto run every 15 min by the Windows Task Scheduler. Once installed it is set it and forget it. Just as it always has been. You can configure CleanMem to do more advanced things such as ignore lists, only lists, and log files. These can be set by the CleanMem Settings program in the start menu.

The Mini Monitor is the only part of CleanMem that is the Free/Pro. All features in the mini monitor from v1.7.0 are included and still free, including some new features that where added as well. One very important thing is that there are no nag screens in the free version of the mini monitor and no pop ups asking you to upgrade to pro or anything like that. So the free version is still as helpful as it was before and the pro version adds more control and options for the power users.
