Re: Re: Re: Releasing memory

I'm checking memory usage with the Windows task manager, and see no 
change in usage there after using Remove or Clear. Using Unprotect[x]; 
Out[x]=. seems to do the trick, but that doesn't work when I am loading 
a big file and calling an external program in the same loop...
