Windows Strip-down


Hi, so I remembered that I this program laying around. It’s a small app, that effectively closes every single process that isn’t essential to Windows, freeing up as much memory as absolutely possible. Keep in mind, this will not stop processes with the same name as the aforementioned processes.

Note: For this program to work 100% optimally, you have to run it as an Administrator.

Right Click – Run as… – Administrator

I was too lazy to create an icon; you’ll have to live with that fact.
