I heard it can be done at command line but can't find it on Google. So, I'm asking Intel here. How do I at the command-line free up the L1, 2, 3 caches and release all of the CPU registers? Thanks ,8 )_

Hi Andrew,

   referring to the need to know how to delete all cache registers on the cpu :

a few months ago my best computer i ever had ( just started using ) got infected.  I bought it from ebay, cheap. I don't know the sku but it was a :

   ~2012 quadCore ~2.5ghz, possible 12or6 MB cache (~L3)

   I had only been running it for about 3 weeks and WindowDefender went nuts saying 'wacatac.B!ml' was trying to take over my computer.  I disconnected that computer and connected my old laptop which got infected in less than a minute (via modem NIC) i think.  i tried to reinstall windows; it keeps coming back, which makes me think it's storing itself in static memory And on my Modem (NIC being tracked and infecting anything connected to the infected modem).

   It's such a great little computer for the price i paid for it, i want to try to CLEAR IT OUT (not static memory left uncleaned)

I want to delete all static memory in the computer including GPU or little chips on the motherboard that hold memory.  Do you have any guidance that will help me toward this aim?  thanks chlyde
