Process Lasso is a process priority optimization and system automation utility. Although Lasso offers a plethora of advanced rules and features, you need not be a tech whiz to use it. As soon as you install Lasso, without any further action, it's ProBalance technology will immediately start restraining CPU hogs to help your PC retain responsiveness during high CPU loads.

Process Lasso's most popular feature is the unique process optimization technology called ProBalance (Process Balance) that will improve your PC's responsiveness and stability through process priority optimization and/or CPU affinity adjustments. In addition to ProBalance, there are countless features allowing the user to take full automated control of the processes on their PC. You can have a wide range operations performed, or settings applied, each time a process is run. Core optimization technologies allow you to choose on what CPUs/cores a process should run, as well as what their CPU priority class and I/O priority class should be.

New In Version 7: This most recent major version has seen the addition of 'ProBalance Insights', a GUI that allows the user to see cumulative ProBalance activity on a per-process basis. There has also been a considerable amount of product refinement, resulting in a more efficient and reliable offering.

Comments on Process Lasso Pro 7.1

Thank you for voting!
Please add a comment explaining the reason behind your vote.

This comment is late but I feel I need to post it anyway. I used the software on two different computers and didn't notice any improvement, but I still kept it running. Just recently, a day before uninstalling, I noticed one of my browser wouldn't open. I checked the Task Manager and upon opening the browser, the running status changed to suspended. Thinking immediately that this was because of something Process Lasso was doing, I closed the software and reopened the browser and it immediately worked. That very second, I went to my Uninstall Programs and quickly removed this software even without looking through the settings to see if there was something I needed to change.

I installed it as it had good ratings and comments it had, but because of this recent incident, it gets a big down vote from me. I don't want any suggestions on how to make it work as it gone from my computer and the giveaway is over.

I really wanted to try this software and even though I requested the activation key several times via email it was never sent. I even wrote an email directly to the company to let them know I wasn't getting the email activation and received no reply. So ... giveawayoftheday was not a giveaway for me. FYI ... unfortunate!

Supplemental: I have tried PL on my old XP machine and found its resource overhead, which it measured itself, was 4.5%, and then tried it on a very old (ex Win 98) Pentium 3 running XP; its overhead was 31%.
Probably on a modern fast machine it would only be 1-2%.
The lesson is see how much it uses before letting it start with Windows: it is easy to set this in the Options menu > General Settings > Configure the way PL starts.
It is always a very useful program for monitoring and trouble shooting even if not kept running all the time.

I have said this before and would do so again and again. Process Lasso is a self seller and great background mode system managers. It helped my windows vista home system recover from a 4 day hard to boot condition.

I managed to get the system to quickly install the software during one of the times it booted to normal and then quickly rebooted. Even after several trials before the inclusion of PL it was difficult to make even MS word to come on, let alone operating 2 or 3 softwares together. My ratings? 200% Thank you GAOTD and makers of Process lasso. I will keep it and buy for my whole office staff.

Would have wanted to know why Karl has not commented . Hope he is fine and gets to read this because he is one of the reliable GAOTD software assessors.

Used this excellent software on a daily basis. Tells and has helped me find problems, potential problems in all applications. It has located bleeding apps, multi-executions of the same program, cpu hogs, bad malware versions and much more. While I am not a total geekhead I have learned enough that it allows me to fix many challenges. Great Job LASSO, please keep up the good work. BTW, I paid for mine b/c I appreciate your work and reward those that help me. God Bless America.

Had it for about 3 years and recommended to others.
The control of process' and "sort of unique functions" make it fantastic.
I can not see much difference between this and my older version.
Been trying features and importantly, I have NOT found a fault with this version.
I highly recommend it.

I was very disturbed to see that one of the processes that Lasso restrained was my A/V real time scanner. That's the last thing I want restrained.

Is there a way to to prevent Lasso from restraining a particular program. I have been using the program for maybe a decade and this is the first I noticed this. I don't want anything to interfere with the scanning of a program while it is starting. I actually uninstalled it for this reason after using it forever.

Tried several previous times. NEVER saw any improvement, chalked up positive comments to a placebo effect since no one ever provides metrics. When I deleted it new problems went away.
Not falling for it again. Been debating all day.

I'm having problems with the installation.... "Failed to Connect, Please try again later". I have tried several times today, also turned off Firewall, turned off McAfee, etc, but no luck.

I was able to go to the website and get an Activation Code emailed to me.

Being creative, I tried downloading the program directly from their website, and it installed fine and is running well. It does seem to be working as designed and improving my computer, but attempts to use the emailed "activation code" have failed with an Uh-oh message.

Any other suggestions?

Running XP sp3.

Hi, since we can use any name when asking for License, I forgot what name I used to activate my previous Version and in the process of applying for new key today - gave different name (same address) and activation rejected that Code, but looks like I'm OK after all and licensed under previous name. Hope it stays this way, as I have no time to start messing about, changing name and re-applying new Key given in today's post. Just little odd, that's all.

I used Process Lasso on nearly every machine I had in a past and on current one, always finding it useful (frankly forgetting at times it's running in a background, that's a good sign, isn't it?:), helping system to run smooth-er (lots of Photo Programs, Games etc) and with this newest version showing ProBalance Restraints too. Cool!:) I truly hope that 'strange' occurrences of serious malfunctions that few Users experienced using this Software/staying away from it, and kindly shared here with the rest of us - were resolved and explained by Bitsum, but many thanks, any form of warning is always well appreciated!

Thanks GOTD and Bitsum Technologies for this Giveaway. Based on my own experience with Process Lasso I can only but recommend it.

I have been a registered user for Process Lasso since it was first offered for sale. For me this is process control the way it should have been and implemented by Microsoft in the first place.

It is correct that you usually don't have any huge effect on a new machine, but I still install it as it helps behind the scene saving me from the not so funny experience of a stalled machine. The benefit of being able to work on the machine for weeks with no forced need for a reboot makes for a good experience(it still is wise to restart the machine from time to time though, but I like to schedule that myself).

There is however, absolutely no magic going on and it is indeed possible to configure Process Lasso in a way that could lead to feeling that a re-install is your only option, but before you do, there's an option at the bottom of the option menu you should try. "Reset all configurations to default".
Process Lasso is nothing but a very advanced process management software and depending on your setup, it may need additional configuration.

Now when configuring, be cautious and don't overdo it! You can tweak a program in every way you wish, just highlight the line with the process you need to tune, right-click and you'll see a meny with every tweak possible starting with priority at the top. Most choices has two submenus. "Current" and "Always" - The first means this session only and always... (you guessed it, but be sure before using it)
You are able to set a process from even "realtime" all the way down to "Idle" priority, but keep in mind that Microsoft advise against using any setting other than "Above Normal" and "Below Normal" as it could make your system unstable.
I have had once or twice when working with sound that I have used "Realtime" for a short time to make sure latency didn't screw it up yet another time.

Ever had a process that you need to run that has a habit of hogging your processor? the next choice is for you "CPU Affinity". start the process and highligt the line for it in process lasso. Right-click, Choose "CPU Affinity" and "Always". Depending on how many cores you have, you could click so that only ie only CPU core 2 is selected and that was the end of that hogging experience. (make sure that the process gets a real core and not a hyperthread which is no core at all).

I'm not going through all choices available, but one more must be noted - "Terminate Always" - Before you highlight a process and click, know what the program really does besides being annoying before rushing to the option. "Terminate" is a way better choice if you don't know. You could be "always terminating" a crucial windows process therby getting a free ticket to the situation where you "feel" that re-install is your only option. For the record, it is not.

The bottom line is that you have a very advanced program at hand that grants you the right to decide yourself, one which have made my installation just as stable as any Microsofts server operating system. It will for you too if you follow this simple guide-line: knowledge first, execution next.

Running Win 7 Ultimate 32-bit on one computer and 64-bit on other; Avira Free on one and Avira Pro on other. Using IE10, Process Lasso would not install on either, until Avira was disabled, and then the Process Lasso program installed and ran, but neither version of Avira could be turned back on, got the following error: "C:Program Files/Avira/AntiVirDesktop/ccuac.exe - Windows cannot access the specific device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item." I had to reinstall Avira. Both programs seem to be both working together now.

Had Process Lasso from the last giveaway (was working great on my HP laptop). Just deleted the older version and installed this newer version on the same laptop. The result is not good. It now seems to constantly freeze-up and anytime I click on the PL window or try to use one of the pull down menus of PL I get a "(Not Responding)" message to the right of the "Process Lasso" name at the top of the PL window. Also, there is nothing in the "Actions Log" or "View Log." There are processes and information about each found in the main section of the PL window. This is a HP laptop and it is interesting that is reads "HP Recommended" to the left of the CPU meters at the top of the screen. I've uninstalled and reinstalled this software a number of times and this doesn't help. I've cleaned traces of the software from the registry as well and this doesn't help either upon reinstall. Does anyone have any suggestions for me as I'd really like to get this back on my laptop as I found it to be a really nice piece of software. Any help would be appreciated. [BTW... I am running 64bit Windows 8.1]

Jeremy Collake, I'm a big fan of "Process Lasso" and I have it since you brought it on the market.
Having many apps in simultaneous operation results in slow startup of my system and considerably reduces its performance.
"Chameleon Startup Inspector" allows real-time monitoring, with approval or rejection of each new program.
Do you consider "Process Lasso" in conflict with "Chameleon" or they really work at different ends of the performance curve?

Because of the high rating of this product, I install it every time when this is given here.

And- it could be just me, but- I don't see ANY difference at all. My computers are in the average- not brand new and fast, neither old nor slow. And in fact- it could doing something positive, but- if I don’t see that- there is no point to have one more running process…

However- I understand it is a very valuable program for the most of you guys, so- thanks GOTD and to the developer!

I used PL long time, but…
My Win7 x64 without 100 different tweakers (each at a different recommended :D, only CleanMem is active) and without PL is fast, responsive, very rarely slows.
With ProcessLasso running very smoothly but not so fast as without PL , more like move at a snail's pace :)
I like every day the fast system, even at the cost rarely slows.

Meant to add, I suggest you try to get the Activation code before installing if you have it installed previously. It overwrote the previous installation and the code is apparently not the same.

Seems to install on Win 7 x32 but no program group can be found. It says activated but I can't find the program in the system. It doesn't even show up in Revo Uninstaller as having been installed.

Too bad. I wanted to give it a fair try. I've used another program , Core Tuner, without much success and thought this might work differently.

I have been using Process Lasso for many years. I first registered Pro around the 3.x versions. I have never been sorry. I have tried many programs that are supposed to do the same thing and only Process Lasso pro saved me a few years ago from a firewall bug. Process Tamer could not handle the load. That was the day I registered it for the first time.

Also don't forget there is still the free version if you ever lose your registered Pro version. So grab this now while it is free and enjoy.

I've had Process Lasso for years.

When I had a Windows XP machine, I used Pro Lasso mostly to monitor the CPU and RAM usage caused by Firefox's memory leaks so I'd know when to close out and reopen Firefox.

Now that I have a Windows 7 machine, I use Pro Lasso to monitor RAM usage whenever I update a program so I'll know when it has completed its ancillary updatings. In other words, whenever a program says it's going to update itself, it does so, then closes, but the updating process is not really complete. Why do I know that it's not really complete? Because all sorts of components from the supposedly (fully-)updated program pop up in Process Lasso's Active Processes pane and the CPU display shows core spiking as the ancillary components update, sometimes two or more at the same time.

The RAM and CPU loads don't seem to be correct in the Main Screen of Process lasso 7.1. Win 7 64, i5, 6G RAM.

Recently I took a screen shot of the All Processes Main Screen and at the bottom it says RAM load 34%. But when I added up all the items in either Memory column they added up to about .42 G. .42G/5.9G=7% not 34%.

Same issue with CPU load.

My machine slows when it is downloading and installing McAfee updates. Which Mc**** app should I derate to free the machine up for other apps? The Process Lasso Main window gives no clue because the CPU and RAM usages are seemingly not correctly displayed.

BTW which Mc*** app is the download update and install item?

Regards

There is little or no benefit for Windows 7 and Windows 8 users simply because both of those manage foreground/background processes very well (and memory allocation, too). Also, modern computers can run a couple of apps and still open and play demanding 3D games without problems (assuming you have a decent graphics card). Windows XP users may find some benefit from Process Lasso but it would be better to simply reduce the number of running programs or background processes. My older Core2Duo E6750 with 4GB RAM system did not benefit from Lasso and neither does my newer Core i5 system. If your system is totally bogged down with stuff running simultaneously then perhaps Lasso can help.

Excellent software which I've found on GAotD some years ago and use ever since. Very low on resources and indeed helps my PC running smoother. I think I've been using for at least 5 years. Many thanks to the developers (bitsum software). I remember I once changed a CPU and PLasso GAotD license was rejected but Bitsum customer support helped me to get it back.
Thanks again.

Truly the best program ever for reducing headaches. Since I have a very powerful gaming computer I mostly just use it for disallowing processes and then I close it. I love the extensive amount of options present within the program. It's a really nice experience to use such well designed software. Thanks to the developer! Don't miss this one guys.

@Jerrry Kclarqk:
Have you considered Sysinternal's Process Explorer?
I *think* it will do what you want.
With it, you can set the priority for each program individually.
Its freeware, also.
Google "Process Explorer", or surf sysinternals.com.
I've used it a number of times to set priorities for programs.
Its really great for killing unresponsive/frozen programs,
but its best use may be tracking unknown/unwanted programs.

Have a GREAT day, Neighbor!

I have to agree with the comment of David C. and some of the other comments! A user guide for newbie's and intermediate users would be great! Because I have been dealing with computers for about 8 years now and sections of using this software is still over my head! Besides, I don't like downloading and using software that is difficult to understand and/or let alone to use! Because it could or the user could, mess up their computer so bad, that it would take a computer specialist to undo the damage! Don't get me wrong! This looks like a great piece of software to use and GAOTD finally offered a good piece of software to give away! But, knowing how to use it, is half the battle! I'm sure that it could probably help older computers, as well as newer ones run more efficiently! But, before I go and download it, I would have to learn more about it and how to use it first. So, I'm going to pass on this one! Besides, my computer is running just fine!

Except for adding some games and other programs to Process Lasso's game mode, and occasionally changing a program's priority, I have left all settings default and the program works fine.

I've used, and recommended, this program for several years. It will make a difference in new or old systems by preventing background processes from hogging resources; it will not make a computer faster, just make it run more smoothly. It has also eliminated stutters in several games on my system.

But I was disappointed when last year's GAOTD offering recently reverted from fully functional to the basic trial version. Apparently today's version has a one year limit also, but I'll install it and, if I'm still around, look for it again next year. (The fact that Bitsum will not offer an actual free version of their program here prevents me from buying it.)

@Martin B - Process Lasso has problems with Acer. I mentioned this twice prior when this was given away. On my Acer (Aspire 5733Z-4851) the system would randomly lock-up when I exited from IE because I have the box checked in TOOLS->INTERNET OPTIONS that says 'Delete browsing history on exit'. If I unchecked that box, Process Lasso ran fine. This was the case with the previous versions given away here; I don't know about today's offering and don't really care to as the Acer issue has never been publicly acknowledged and I'd most likely have to uninstall anyway.

I have a killer (don't laugh) XP machine with a pair of SSD's that I configured just before April. It is "cleaned up" to the max and runs IMHO FLAWLESSLY and about as fast as one could hope for. It has USB 3 with 3 monitors all of which are fast enough to display video. PLUS there are NO MOVING PARTS! The cpu and graphics card do not have fans.

I do NOT use this machine for gaming, though. So since I monitor it so carefully, today's version will be a superb test.

One more oddly relevant thing: I have found out that a MAJOR issue with these older machines is that the heatsink compound on the CPU tends to dry out and this can lead to issues where people blame software for the machine "slowing down" when it is only a cpu heat issue. When you occasionally "clean up" your machine this is a MUST to check for.

Oh and I had tried a much earlier version of this Lasso but back then I couldn't figure out if it was helping or not!

I also use AUTORUNS to "control" all the bad boys who want to "phone home" and also take over the computer at startup; and PROCESS EXPLORER to figure out who is doing what to whom. Mark Russinovich is a genius.
We'll see!

Installed on win 8.1 pro 64-bit and XP pro 32-bit boxes. Been using process lasso sporadically for several years and, as the developer claimed, this version appears more refined and robust. Once installed you're greeted with a complex-looking window that, when your eyes stop glazing over, shows in real-time its inner workings. It does constantly run in the background, so I did a few basic checks of its impact on computer resources compared to other software. Opening task manager on the win 8.1 machine, in the processes tab, process lasso is .04% of (AMD 8-core) CPU and uses 8.4mb of memory. Compared with desktop gadgets (.05 CPU 34.3mb RAM), chrome (34% CPU when opening a new tab & 115.9 RAM) and windows weather (0% CPU & 34.9 RAM) process lasso has a light impact on my system.

I've tried two previous versions on a Windows XP system. Both have been deleted. It constantly runs in the background so it is using some of the cpu time. To be effective it has to overcome it's own cpu usage plus optimize usage of other programs. On my older (seven years old) hyper threading Pentium with Windows XP I did not notice an improvement and it did occasionally cause some problems with other software slowing the system down.

Now there is a new version available and I would like it to work for me so I'll try this version 7.1. My PC works without any problems so I'll know if this version of Process Lasso slows down, speeds up or does nothing for my system. It will take several weeks of use to know the overall benefits.

Activation is weird.
When I finish installing, a popup says (not verbatim quote, but the gist):
"Congratulation, your system is activated.
Go to this website to get your activation key."

So... is it activated or not??
No, it's not. In the program, the Help menu has no "About", only "Activation."
So I went to the website, asked for my activation key, which is sent "immediately." After waiting a bit, I found it in my spam folder. All is well after pasting that code into activation.

But that original message needs some editing!

I have a lifetime license and been pleased for years now.
Those that think newer computer won't benefit are greatly mistaken.

Currently running on Win 8.1 64 bit with an eight core AMD processor. Yep the comp screams without PL, but if you're a power user running many graphic programs. . . well adding PL is like giving your rig a shot of N2O when the demand is needed.

Having problems installing, getting NSIS error, integrity check failed. Win 8.1, Acer EI-570 laptop, plenty of HD space/ RAM, using Chrome browser, cleared the cache, still same error. I've had similar problems before with GOTD software on this PC, which is a shame, I had a previous GOTD version of Process Lasso on my old XP PC, liked it. Any ideas?

I've tried this twice. All it ever did is slow down my system.

Is this going to become a limited version after a year as #2 said?
