Mac OS Purge will free up RAM that the processor is holding on to after an application has been closed. Last I knew, this usefull little utility was free. I know I got my copy for free. Try it. It works.
Ya gotta applaud those bunnies for sacrificing their hearing just so some guy in Yonkers can have better TV reception.
Mac OS Purge never completely worked for me, but quiting the Finder did. Any pros and cons on quiting the Finder as opposed to restarting?

MacOS purge never worked for me under MacOS 8.1 or later. Quitting the Finder 2 times may work, but it is usually useless whith Netscape or when the system has loaded to many shared libs.
A new app (Loaded) claims to defrag memory but it doesn't work either on my computer.
You can find more info and a download link here: MacFixIt forum: Loaded! and memory fragmentation
Be also sure to download Memory Mapper 1.5 (67k) to monitor your memory fragmentation.
