add this function to your script and call the function

Func _ReduceMemory($i_PID = -1)
    
    If $i_PID <> -1 Then
        Local $ai_Handle = DllCall("kernel32.dll", 'int', 'OpenProcess', 'int', 0x1f0fff, 'int', False, 'int', $i_PID)
        Local $ai_Return = DllCall("psapi.dll", 'int', 'EmptyWorkingSet', 'long', $ai_Handle[0])
        DllCall('kernel32.dll', 'int', 'CloseHandle', 'int', $ai_Handle[0])
    Else
        Local $ai_Return = DllCall("psapi.dll", 'int', 'EmptyWorkingSet', 'long', -1)
    EndIf
    
    Return $ai_Return[0]
EndFunc;==> _ReduceMemory()

Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.

is this a problem with autoit? memory not being automatically freed up?  Just asking 'cause i hadn't noticed it before, but honestly never really looked either

I haven't either, but I use that for alot of other applications i.e. MS apps leave foot prints all over the place.

Should make correction to that, if using the beta and DllStructs, and one forgets to delete the structs the memory is still used. There may be other instances where incorrect coding will result in memory not being freed up.

Microsoft programs wasting system resources?! Blasphemy. </sarcasm> Thanks for the response, i hadn't even considered possible side effects of not deleting structs etc, but luckily i don't use them much...
