Does anyone recommend a good (simple) program to help me close down background processes and free up memory for gaming. I have lost my gaming PC for a while (off for repairs) and I'm trying to use my laptop for some emergency gaming. It seems reasonable but usually the game gets stuttery due to an overall lack of RAM and video Ram. I know I could use Task Manager and try to "trial and error" my way through the list, but this takes forever. My system on the Laptop is Vista, and seems to have lots of stuff hogging the limited memory I have (2 gig RAM).
