    In Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64 bit, I find many of my apps running thereon have such a dependency on page file space most memory cleaners have to re-clean as soon as they’re done, St. Vitus’ Dance of a kind. I make do with occasional use of Registry Defrag Free, and regular use of Iobit’s Smart Defrag 2.7.
