Windows 7: Memory Improve Pro doubles the processes

Memory Improve Pro doubles the processes

Hi there
It's some day I'm checking this program and I'm a little confused.
When I open the main window and I check in "Process Control", I see that all the processes are double
I've tried to kill one by one the double processes (that shows the same identical value like PID, memory and priority) and for the most part of it, I can do that without problem. Only if I try to kill some system process (even though it's double), the system crashes.
I have checked the services and the boot in system configuration to be sure that I don't have Memory Improve in Startup and I don't have it. And if I check side by side Task manager and Memory Improve Pro, I can see the double processes.
What can I do to solve this problem?
Thanks in advance and ...sorry for my bad english.

Have a great day

Best solution is to ditch that so called "memory optimizer" and let Windows handle it itself, that and you would be hard pressed to find anyone here that would use something like that. Most (more like all) memory optimizers are nothing more than pure snake oil; they rpomise the moon as far as improved performance and usually end up hurting performance more than they help.

That and according to your specs you have 8 GB of ram, what do you need something like that program for?

I remember back roughly 10 years ago, "memory optimizers" were the big thing, although they don't actually help any. There were literally thousands to choose from, yet it seemed no one realized that IT also had to use memory to run. With systems the way they are now, there isn't a reason to even attempt using one. Memory is there to be used. There's no reason not to let it be used for what it was made for, especially with how much you have.

Same thing goes for registry cleaners/optimizers......they don't make enough difference to risk using it.

Thanks to both of you for the replies.
I agree with you, but I'm so used to have installed this program that it's quite natural for me to reinstall it.
But anyway, I cannot understand why the program has all doubled the running service and so on....
