Process Lasso 3.85.2 beta

Posted on Sunday, May 30 2010 @ 19:23:47 CEST by

Process Lasso is a unique new technology that will improve your PC's responsiveness and stability during periods of high CPU load. Windows, by design, allows programs to monopolize your CPU without restraint -- leading to hangs and micro-lags. Process Lasso's ProBalance (Process Balance) technology intelligently adjusts the priorities of running programs so that badly behaved processes won't negatively impact the responsiveness of your PC.

  • Addition.Core: Added feature to disable ProBalance after system has been idle X minutes
  • Addition.GUI: Added facilitating ProBalanace settings for new feature to disable ProBalance when PC idle
  • Addition.GUI: Show maximum CPU frequency in status bar
  • Addition.CPUEater: Added new affinity selection, to test CPU Eater or specific CPUs
  • Addition.CPUEater: Added new total processes and threads in status bar
  • Change.CPUEater: Re-arranged dialog
  • Change.CPUEater: Allow specification of maximum threads and CPU affinity
  • Change.CPUEater: Tweaks to default aggressiveness (was unnecessarily aggressive on single CPU systems)
  • Addition.GUI: Added an exception handler to allow users the option to continue or restart Process Lasso after an exception (in some locations)
  • Change.GUI: Remove UAC shield from 'manage processes of all users', as it hid check state
  • Change.GUI: Removed PL logo from ProBalance settings to make room for new options
  • Change.GUI: Tweasks to single and multiple process selection context menus
  • Change.Core: Added a hard-coded exclusion for Symantec Endpoint Security since ProBalance on it was triggering tampering warnings
  • Change.All: Experimental compiler configuration changes
  • Change.Core: Tweaked process suspension and throttling code [backport eligible]
  • Addition.GUI: Added greeting message the first time you 'close' the GUI to the system tray, informing that the GUI is down there sleeping
  • Update.Installer: Updated to NSIS 2.46 unicode
  • Change.GUI: Added menu options for quickly setting 'disable ProBalance while user away' feature
  • Change.GUI: Added total system thread count to status bar (with existing total process count)
  • Change.CPUEater: Added status bar
  • Change.CPUEater: Added total system process and thread count to status bar
  • Change.Server.Edition: Change to default ProBalance settings
  • Removal.GUI: Removed 'beep when' settings from the ProBalance configuration dialog to make space for new, more important features
  • Change.Core: Tweaked Server Edition ProBalance defaults
  • Addition.Core: Added Emergency Stall Recovery feature which will take highly aggressive action if system responsiveness drops below a certain threshold for too long. The difference between ERS and ProBalance is that ERS is much more aggressive, acting on anything (i.e. even the foreground process, which would be ignored by ProBalance in its default settings)
  • Addition.GUI: Added all facilitating menu items and dialogs for Emergency Stall Recovery
  • Addition.Core: Added log entry indicating if restoration of a ProBalance process occurred to due maximum restraint time reached
