I think it's better to restart it once every 2 or 3 days because it clears the memory and its speeds it up a little.

Rambooster is great, though I've never noticed any performance boost.

FreeRam XP 1.04 (or something like that) was good for me, but didn't improve performance noticibly so i don't got that anymore. Seems like it was using more RAM than it was freeing up...

Yeah, about every 3 days is a good idea, but if it doesn't kill you to turn it off at night, its never a bad idea.
