The result is also in the Out[..] variable. You can clear that (see tutorial/MemoryManagement). Alternatively, you could prevent that the history is stored by setting $HistoryLength to zero before you start.

If I don't release the memory of variables = I no longer need, soon I ran out of memory, that's why I need to know how t= o make the memory available again during calculation.
