  1. I’m back. After trying to create the task, it said that another task like that already existed, but I couldn’t see where it was on the task manager.

  2. I did all that, couldn’t find the refresh button in that area so I used the one in the table on the right instead. Then I closed the Task Scheduler.

    When I checked back, it didn’t show that the task I made was running. Bad, right?

    Just wanted to make sure.

  3. When I scanned EmptyStandbyList.exe file in virustotal, It is showing as file is malicious!
    How can I trust that file is not harmful?

  4. The cache does not contain all the ram, your fix is not cleaning anything. A virus can remain in the memory and move anywhere on the chip! I know this because I have one on my computer. You are only freeing up unused memory!

  5. Hello,

    I would like to know what does exactly contain this app which we are using to clear cash aitomatically?
    Which is the difference between using batch file in task scheduler, and using an app like you have created?

    Looking forward to have answers.
