Process Lasso (freeware with Startup Nag)

Post by ckit » Sun Mar 29, 2009 5:22 am

Process Lasso is a unique new technology that will, amongst other things, improve your PC's responsiveness and stability. Windows, by design, allows programs to monopolize your CPU without restraint -- leading to freezes and hangs. Process Lasso's ProBalance technology intelligently adjusts the priority of running programs so that badly behaved or overly active processes won't interfere with your ability to use the computer!

Process Lasso also offers an assortment of ways to take full control of how your CPUs are allocated to running programs. You can choose what priority and what CPUs any process should be given. You can even have overly active processes automatically moved to the CPUs of your choice until they calm down.

In addition, you can disallow certain programs, and log all programs run. You can also limit the number of instances a program can have, so that accidental launching of mulitiple instances is prevented. The number of uses for Process Lasso is countless. We encourage you to try it for yourself. It's free. If you so choose, you can later purchase the Pro version.

Once you install Process Lasso, it'll just start working. More advanced users can tweak the configuration, but you needn't touch anything to have it instantly improve your system responsiveness and prevent stalls in high load situations.

* Process Lasso Features ProBalance dynamic priority and affinity optimization

v3.54

This version adds the ability to hide/show specific process columns, support for silent installs, password protection of the configuration file, better multi-language installer support, and much more.

Changes:
