Process Lasso Portable is a powerful software application that prevents programs from hogging the CPU. This portable version of Process Lasso helps you improve your PC’s time response. It comes packed with a wide range of options and configuration settings that give you more control over running processes.
Since this utility does not require installation, it means that you can easily copy the program files to any location on the hard disk, as well as to a portable storage unit, such as a USB flash drive, therefore enabling you to run Process Lasso Portable on any computer you have access to. It is also worth mentioning that the Windows registry and Start menu/screen are not going to be affected whatsoever.
The interface is simple and contains a color-coded graphical representation of the process usage, responsiveness, memory load and process restraint. Aside from that, the main window displays an actions log, a list of all the processes, as well as the active ones, paired with details such as name, rules, priority class, CPU affinity, description and memory.
This application enables you to set the priority class, CPU affinity, I/O and memory priority, CPU level and time, restraint history, limit of instances and power profile (power saver, high performance and balanced). You can exclude specified process from ProBalance restraint, energy saver and foreground boost.
The application can log process launches and terminations, priority and affinity adjustments, disallowed processes, limit terminations, ProBalance events, and the list goes on. Furthermore, you can configure rules for particular processes (watchdog). For example, when a program exceeds 500MB for 60 seconds, you can terminate it, execute another process and so on.
To sum up, Process Lasso Portable is an efficient piece of software with an array of features and low CPU and memory usage. The time response is good and there were no freezes, hangs or bugs registered during our tests.
