Did Windows 7 manager changed value

Today I installed windows 7 manager program from Yamicsoft

One thing cached my eye, Its registry tweak for level 2 cache ,where you can change value from 256kb-12mb I did not change anything because it was little fishy to me. In program the value was set to 256kb, so I think when i changed another tweak it saved this one too, because I have now 100 (256) value in registry under

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management

SecondLevelDataCache=100(256)

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet001\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management

SecondLevelDataCache=100(256)


under

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet002\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management

SecondLevelDataCache=0

wich I think is default acorrding to M$

Detailed Explanation of SecondLevelDataCache

So I would like to ask users to check their values, so I can be 100% sure that its 0.

You are right, my mistake.

I think program changed default values. So I want to know what are the default values of these registry entries

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\SecondLevelDataCache ?
HKLM\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\SecondLevelDataCache ?
HKLM\SYSTEM\ControlSet002\Control\Session Manager\Memory ManagementqSecondLevelDataCache ?


According to MS they are set to 0

Small suggestion. Remove Yamicsoft. Go back to a restore point before you installed
Yamicsoft. These do all, fix all, speed up programs are snake oil.

Leave it alone. It is not used on modern machines. Its a left over from old CPUs before Pentium II.

I don't post very often just to say I agree, but now I have to.

Windows 7 does not need any optimizers. You are most probably doing more harm in the long run with your "Tweak this, fix that" software than you had never thought.

Windows 7 is fully capable to take care of itself without third party optimizers.

Honestly the only thing that can make sense of the Registry is Windows itself. Windows 7 is very good at maintaining it's registry, and any third party program will simply do more harm than good.




It's actually scary the number of people who in the past few weeks have been popping up here saying that they use registry cleaners.
