don't need to purchase expensive computer memory in order to speed up your
PC. The Cacheman utility is designed to improve the performance of your
computer by optimizing the disk cache, memory and a number of other settings.
Cacheman prevents frequent paging to the hard disk caused by poor memory
management, so you get improved performance, faster system reaction time
and greater stability. Wizards and predefined profiles make it suitable
for novices and yet it is also powerful and versatile enough for the more
experienced user. Cacheman also corrects generic problems on systems with
more than 512MB of RAM.
Sometimes slow computer performance can be attributed to poor memory
management. With Cacheman, you can adjust the size of your cache, minimizing
the need to swap files between your memory and hard drive. Since accessing
data from the cache is faster than from the hard drive, the result is improved
system performance. These settings can be changed manually by changing
a Windows system .INI file, but why do that when you can adjust the size
of your cache with sliders? There are also automatic settings, so that
you can choose the optimization method depending on how you're using your
computer (using multiple applications at once, or using a CD-writer).
Cacheman will let you optimize your disk cache, name and path cache,
CD-Rom cache, and icon cache to speed up your computer. You can also periodically
recover memory, tweak several system settings to improve performance ,
watch and monitor several important system values within Cacheman’s graphical
user interface (including the computer system overview page, history graph,
logging, and tray icon), and create system configuration reports.
The program is probably best described as being “something for the truly
performance obsessed — those who want to wring every last bit of speed
out of their system by tweaking Windows' various caches. Thanks to the
built in wizards and help system, you can make these adjustments without
having extensive knowledge of how Windows works. The wizards, for instance,
provide far more explanatory text than is usually seen in most shareware.
This program ensures you understand a decision before you make it. And
if you change settings without using a wizard, context sensitive help is
always readily available.
You can save configurations and return to them later, or easily go back
to the configuration you were using when you installed Cacheman. The program
can also boost your system's performance by recovering inaccessible RAM.
This version, which operates on Win9x, WinME, WinNT, Win2k, and WinXP,
includes an improved uninstaller that restores your computer to its original
settings regardless of the tweaks made. That alone should be worth the
price of the program!
Cost of the program, which has no disabled features and no time limit,
is dependent on the user: Private and Educational users can register the
program for $10. If you really cannot afford the shareware fee you are
allowed to use Cacheman as Freeware. All updates for registered users will
be free even if we should be forced to change the license to Shareware
only with the next major release. Commercial and Corporate users may continue
to use Cacheman legally after 15 days for a $10 single user license fee.
Discounts are available for multi-user and corporate/site licenses.
