How to clear/empty computer's cached memory???


I just wondered that is it possible to clear or empty your computer's cached memory on the fly without restarting the computer?

I'd have to ask why you would want to?? The CPU uses cache memory to store instructions that are repeatedly required to run programs, improving overall system speed. The advantage of cache memory is that the CPU does not have to use the motherboard’s system bus for data transfer. You don't want to clear that.
