process lasswo

RProcess Lasso is a freeware Windows utility that, amongst other things, will 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!

Moreover, the graphical interface of the "PRocess Lasso" presents a display and a manual manipulation of running processes. This application is not intended to replace the Task Manager, but has capacity to do so due to its main functions.

Although you can modify the program's settings, is not recommended to do so, because these settings are chosen to obtain an optimal performance.
