Process Lasso is a unique new technology intended to automatically adjust the allocation of CPU cycles so that system responsiveness is improved in high-load situations. It does this by dynamically temporarily lowering the priorities of processes that are consuming too many CPU cycles, there-by giving other processes a chance to run if they are in need. This is useful for both single and multi-core processors. No longer will a single process be able to bring your system to a virtual stall.
Addition.Installer: Process Lasso is no longer launched after install
with administrative rights (showing processes of all users) unless
configured to be launched that way.
Addition.InstallHelper: Now force users who choose to start the governor
as a service to user global INI and log path over-rides.
Change.Installer: Removed IntallHelper from start menu shortcuts, you
must now re-run the installer to make install related changes.
Change.Installer: Removed config/LOG migration from very old versions.
Change.InstallHelper: Removed 'Process Lasso must restart' message and
functionality, intending for the InstallHelper to only be run during an
install, when Process Lasso is already closed.
Change.InstallHelper: Allow blank passwords in service run-as user
Change.InstallHelper: Restore 'back' button on second dialog.
Change.InstallHelper: Auto-populate global log folder over-ride.
Change.InstallHelper: Other changes related to run-as-service support.
Change.InstallHelper: If error during service installation, don't allow
user the option to continue without changing startup type or service config.
Fix.InstallHelper: Fixed issue where log events are not written when
running the governor as a system service not in any user context, and a
global log folder is not specified
Fix.Core: Fixed issue where core engine, when running as a service, it
in some cases wouldn't detect configuration changes.
Fix.GUI: Process creation time now shown in local time.
Addition.GUI: Appended PID to process name in log item display.
Change.GUI: Fixed tab ordering on several dialogs.
Change.GUI: Changed menu organization slightly.
Fix.Core: [from 3.18.2] Fixed critical Windows 2000 error in cases where
a large number of processes exist.
Change.ProcessControl: [from 3.18.2] Optimized loading of dynamic
imports. Reduction in CPU use.
Change.Installer: [from 3.18.2] Force Win2k users to manually close
instances of Process Lasso during upgrade to avoid problematic older
