I think question might need little more clarification. Is there any way to recuce screen brightness beyond what windows lets you except Monitor Birghtness Reducer?

I downloaded from here:

But it's using too much ram, even the developer accepts it in his readme.txt file i quote from the read me file, "**

... the second side effect is that this program will eat 15 MB of your RAM, just by starting it. This high memory usage is not a bug but it is by design.

Define "too much ram" and can you include the section about the ram in the readme file in to the text of your question? – Scott Chamberlain Feb 28 '13 at 18:47
Not sure what you're trying to achieve, but maybe f.lux will work for you. It doesn't reduce the brightness actually, but changes color temperature. – gronostaj Feb 28 '13 at 19:00
@ScottChamberlain : i added the quotetion from readme file – Timur Aykut YILDIRIM Mar 1 '13 at 7:54
@gronostaj : pardon me for not knowing color tempreture. what is it? :) I spent too much on pc and my eyes are getting dry. Even if i decrease brightness to minimum i think my screen still too bright. This is why i need this kind of program – Timur Aykut YILDIRIM Mar 1 '13 at 7:59
@TimurAykutYıldırım then I think f.lux will be great for you. It makes your screen look more reddish at night. That's more natural for your eyes when it's dark. – gronostaj Mar 1 '13 at 8:08

F.lux should do what you are requesting with a minimum of fuss.
