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. Windows, by design, allows programs to monopolize your CPU without sufficient restraint -- leading to hangs, micro-lags, and delays in your keystroke or mouse actions. ProBalance intelligently adjusts the priorities and/or CPU affinities of running programs on-demand so that badly behaved processes won't negatively impact the responsiveness of your PC.

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. You can also disallow specified processes from running, log all processes run, and even set various other process rules. These rules, amongst many others, include automatically restarting or terminating a process after it reaches some CPU or memory threshold.

System Requirements:

Windows XP, 2003, 2008, Vista, 7, 8

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

Mr. Giovanni and the others are WRONG!
This does not speedup your system at all.
EG. If you have Avast (Internet Security) you can NOT change
the process priority, as they're protected by AVAST, and Avast is
the biggest resource hog on my laptop (i7 2Ghz)
For me, this never worked or made system responsiveness any better.
Waste of your time, imho.

Before I installed the program Musicbrainz picard tagger was unresponsive for long periods of time when loading a music collection up.

I could not get into menus or back into the program screen. Task manager said not responsive. The Hdd led was flashing indicating it was trying to load.

After installing process lasso I was able to go into menus of Picard tagger click on songs change settings etc.

I don't know how they did it but they did what they said they kept the system responsive.

(note: they never said they would speed the system up they only said they would keep it responsive with better process management compared to windows management.)

Only setting I changed in process lasso was "Manage all processes lasso has access to".

To Bitsum thank you very much for this program.

#52 Terry: "After you install program and configure the way it starts, launch the graphical user interface and look at the Process Lasso menu bar on top and click “Main” and select “Active Power Profile” and then select “High Performance”.

Updated prior version to today's. I was very pleased to see an expert's suggestion for optimizing PL. But I can't get past the first tip since clicking on "Main" doesn't reveal an "Active Power Profile" selection.

Is it possible another setting from my previous GAOD configuration is preventing that option from showing on the Main menu?

Appreciate any advice...

Very light software that kills any unneeded background processes. It has the ability to always terminate specific processes that aren't currently needed by the user, and thus improves efficiency. This is most effective if the user has installed many programs. Since most programs have some kind of background service that either speeds up it's startup or adds some kind of unnecessary feature (not always unnecessary). Process lasso is especially good on older system(obviously). Since my PC is an older system this software serves a really good purpose. Definitely worth the download, and the purchase.

I have tried this program in its various incarnations over the years on loads of different machines and, without exception, there was no improvement. In fact, in most cases, the machine became sluggish and unresponsive. Removal perked everything back up to scratch again, so I don't understand how it gets glowing reviews from some bodies.

I have used Process Lasso Pro for years and it is a great software, but it takes some time to figure out how to use it effectively and users need to actually check out all the options it has in it's drop down menu lists and fiddle with it to become more familiar with it.

It's default settings when installed are already god and basic, most people can install it and forget about it if they wish, but to get better improvements you need to actually check out all your options it gives you.

It does not make your computer magically faster, what it does is it takes all those unruly hoggish troublesome processes that want all your processors attention and retrieve how much priority they get, thus preventing your computer from freezes or lock-ups.

Here is some easy tips for noob users new to Process Lasso Pro.

After you install program and configure the way it starts, launch the graphical user interface and look at the Process Lasso menu bar on top and click "Main" and select "Active Power Profile" and then select
"High Performance".

After that be sure to select "Main" again and select "Probalence Enabled" and be sure that is check marked.

Noe select "Options" in the menu bar and select "Configure CPU core parking", disregard any warning you may get, and when "Park Control" launched make sure all core parking is DISABLED and select the disable button for all your cores and then hit the "apply" button and then hit the OK button.

From this point it would be a good idea to "right click" any process you see running within Process Lasso to see the options you have and can apply to specific processes.

You can right click any process and assign many options specifically to that process, you can do a internet search on any running process that you see running in Process Lasso and select "Locate" and then select "Search for process on internet" to learn more about each process you have running.

You can select game processes running within Process Lasso by right clicking it within Process Lasso and select "Classify as a game or media player process" and Process Lasso will not hinder or slow down that process and give that process priority over other processes.

This is just to get noobs started with this great software, the more you fiddle around with the program the more benefits you get from it.

Software support for Process Lasso are great and problems are responded to in a prompt manor, and the program is updated regularly.

If you have needed programs that are glitchy and tend to hog your processor to the point where you get lock-ups or freezes then Process Lasso is great for solving such problems.

I recommend Process Lasso to everyone and thanks Jeremy and Bitsom for such a great software, and thank you GAOTD for making this available.

#4 Karl:
"The system freezes from time to time a very short moment, especially when starting Calibre."

Thanks for that observation. I also have a Project Lasso license and always experience freezes upon startup of Calibre (and occasionally some other programs). But since I have a Vista 32-bit PC with <4 GB of usable RAM, the freezes are never for "a very short moment." They last so long that it's never worthwhile to wait for the unfreeze--I get up from the PC and do something else.

Thanks also for all your trusted contributions here, much appreciated.

#27: "I have used the previous version from GAOTD. Whatever I did as tunning, I didn’t see many much difference with or without PL. My config is old -Win XPSP3 – AMD Athlon 64, 3.2 – 3G ram. I run only avast and comodo, many services are stopped."

I've never run Avast or Comodo so I've no experience to say whether there's any interaction or not. That disclaimer of sorts out of the way, XP is different than the versions of Windows that came after it -- one of the big differences is in the way it handles services. In XP a good many services could be stopped, set to manual from automatic etc., & it worked to speed up XP, sometimes considerably -- there were whole sites devoted just to setting, working with XP's services.

You write that you have many services stopped, & only run Avast & Comodo. In that case what is Process Lassos to do? It can of course provide it's monitoring, but if there's nothing in the way there's nothing to work on -- it can't juggle resources to minimize the impact of services & processes that are not running, & so have no impact to begin with.

#26: "The big advantage of this program is for controlling programs that can use up a lot of system resources, such as video processing. Try running four or five incidents of VirtualDub at the same time. "

Generally speaking, I don't think you want to do that. Ideally when you're processing video you want close to 100% CPU & GPU -- that's very probably not possible given current software [I've not seen or heard of it running AMD GPUs anyway], but that's the ideal. Depending on the number of pixels you're trying to move, you can also very often find yourself limited by the amount of data that can move through the bus. Personally I've only seen a few apps capable of processing multiple streams of video in parallel while using the CPU & GPU, & they were very much focused on speed rather than quality. That doesn't mean that you can't run multiple instances of a video app, but trying to do actual processing, not just setting up edits & similar, normally means longer total processing times, when & if it works. Then again If your video handling software components are set up properly, e.g. decoders, splitter etc., you can come close enough to maxing out your resources that there's no need [or practical possibility] to run multiple simultaneous tasks processing video.

Now where Process Lasso can come in handy is effectively stopping many other processes that can interfere & sometimes even corrupt video rendering. In many cases you can be moving a truly very large amount of data from point a to point b -- at the more extreme, 1.5 - 2 hours of lightly compressed, all key-frame HD amounts to many hundreds of GB -- and a surprising number of normally running processes can interfere with that data flow... depending on the video hard & software you're using, that can sometimes abort or corrupt or delay video rendering. There's more obvious stuff, like you don't want a web browser running with Flash active & using your GPU, but also stuff like Windows Computer Browser service, which I would have never thought of, but was at least partly responsible for killing long video renders with hardware & software I was using a few years back.

In general, Windows manages both cpu and RAM usage very well. This is especially true with Windows 7 and 8. If you have an older system (like maybe XP) on which you have many, many background processes running and not very much RAM memory then Lasso may be worth a shot. But it would be even better to increase your amount of RAM and reduce the number of things running in the background. If you do that then you won't need a performance band-aid like Lasso.

#3: "Every time when this software comes as a Giveaway I downloaded and install it on my Windows 7 Laptop with a hope and of-course pressurized by the highly thumbs up ratio that this Product increase the speed of my Laptop.But I am really sorry to say to the developers of this program that after four-five days I always uninstalled this program because instead of increasing- it always decrease the system speed and browsing!!!"

What's there is there -- what isn't, isn't. No software can make your hardware faster or more powerful. Sadly the best way, the only way really, to a faster laptop is replacing it with a faster, better model. Here PCs have a bit of an edge, since you can usually upgrade components, & sometimes overclock. When you limit the size, e.g. in a small form factor PC, or with the small case or housing a laptop uses for portability, you also limit the possibilities to upgrade vs. replace.

What you can do with a lower powered PC/laptop is ask less of it, much the same way tablets & cells run apps that aren't nearly as powerful or capable as what you can find on a laptop or PC. That's one [of several] reasons XP still hangs on, & again, one of several reasons some folks run *nix. If rumors & speculation pan out, in the future Microsoft *might* offer a very much lighter weight version of Windows, similar to Chromebooks, & that might offer relief. Today there are also some more-or-less experimental mods you can try with Windows, cutting it to the bare minimum it takes to run -- I got an old, old win98 laptop running XP that way. You can also keep your eye on the latest versions of win8.1, where MS is trying to make it possible to run on very limited hardware, e.g. it's now possible to run win8.1 off the unexpanded, still compacted or compressed image file used to install Windows, cutting the disk storage requirements considerably.

Process Lasso helps when your hardware is overburdened because of running software processes -- not necessarily basic Windows. It helps your hardware, & Windows, make better use of the resources it has. But Process Lassos is software, and that means that it does take some resources to run, just like every other bit of software ever written, so Process Lasso can only help performance when the amount it saves is greater than the amount it consumes. Alchemy doesn't work [at least at present], so no software can do more regarding performance.

FWIW, I've an i5 cpu with 6GB x64 and this IS useful for controlling ill-behaved processes which grab cpu cycles and won't let go; slowing everything else down. Calibre is one such program and when importing large numbers of books or getting metadata for such, the performance of everything else slows to a crawl without Process Lasso. The result is everything works MUCH smoother.

It's not the ONLY program which has this feature -- there's a list in the comments above and several of them work as well -- but PL nonetheless IS useful on my machine for such cases. Killing rogue processes is another benefit of this and it works much better than the native task manager in Win h8, but PL is again not really unique in this and many of its competitors do this as well.

As for the rest of its features (and, it has many more than its competitors), I remain unconvinced. Still, this for me has been relatively trouble-free and as long as it is price-free here, it is worth getting.

I had Process Lasso on my Windows XP PC for years, first having downloaded it from GotD, and then bought it. I found it crucial for letting me know when the CPU usage had gotten too high due to Firefox memory leaking. I also found it extremely helpful that when you click on the All processes tab and hover over a program (or expand the Process name section), the entire path will be displayed. This is especially useful for programs like svchost.exe because Process Lasso lets you see the difference between them.

I bought a new Windows 7 PC last month, and the increased memory makes Firefox memory leaks and Facebook's "Home" page load much faster, so Process Lasso is no longer as useful in that respect, but re programs like svchost, it is more relevant that ever, since Windows 7 has way more versions of svhcost running at one time than Windows XP did.

Process Lasso allows for identifying programs that you suspect might be malware. Once their name and location are identified, you can scan them with anti-virus and anti-malware utilities and do an online search on the program's name.

As for the CPU utilization graph, I have noticed something really interesting. I have a quad core system, and at the bottom of Process Lasso it says "1 CPUs, 4 cores, 8 logic," and every once in a while, a blank area to the right of a CPU on the graph will show activity. Wow. I thought this was a glitch at first, but I guess it's reading one of the 8 "logic"s that are usually measured with their corresponding core. In other words, my CPU utilization graph has eight columns and measurements usually only show in four of them, but every once in awhile I see a measurement in one of the four other columns, too.

I got Process Lasso the last time GAOTD offered it and it was so fabulous that I bought it. I have used it ever since and it is amazing. I usually leave it to run on it's own but, if needed, I can deliberately stop one program I use frequently from slowing the computer to a crawl. I highly recommend it and would never go without it.

I Rate Process Lasso as an Essential Windows Utility

I installed Lasso a couple of years ago when v3.xx was offered on GOATD. I was so impressed that I bought a lifetime license. Here is why.

Lasso installs nicely on both XP Pro SP3 x32 and W7 Pro SP1 x64. The Developer regularly updates Lasso. Never any issues with updates.

Lasso doesn't increase the performance of Windows. It regulates the operation of Windows to ensure proper performance of Windows. One can tweak how individual application software works with Windows in order to achieve an optimum PC environment. But the default settings work find. So, basically, install Lasso and let it do its thing. I believe Lasso is most useful for 'weak' PCs, because it controls the CPU & RAM resources used by background processes.

Lasso is a highly technical software that really doesn't require the average user to do more than install it...and let Lasso work quietly without interaction.

I recommend allowing Lasso to place its 'monitor' icon in your SysTray (where the time is located in lower right corner). It provides quick access to Lasso graphical performance charts and RAM usage via mouseover.

Many kudos to the Lasso Developer Jeremy. Thank you very much.

I fully concur with comments made by members such as XhenEd, Michael Summerset, jgf, Victor Viceor. In my case, no other utility has brought more stability to my Windows-based system than this has and note that it includes different components (executables) that you should be aware of; the Governor component and the User Interface component.

I've used ProcessLasso for at least 5 years now and I can attest the Windows operating system has operated much more stable with it than without it. All the occasional system freezes and lock-ups I used to get, do not happen when the "ProcessGovernor.exe" process is active, which is the only thing you need running to bring stability to your system. It should always be allowed to start when Windows boots up. Also, on my machine, the "ProcessGovernor.exe" process does not use more than .03% of the CPU. I do not see how a fraction of 1% CPU use can slow down somebody's system to be noticeable.

On the other hand, the "ProcessLasso.exe" process does use about 4% CPU on my machine. However, this process is associated only with the ProcessLasso User Interface, which monitors and collects system information in real-time mode. I do not allow this process to automatically start during the Windows starup, since I do not need to know this information when the system is behaving normally. I activate the User Interface (i.e. the traffic light icon) manually only when I suspect the machine is not behaving as it should or I'm just curious to view specific information on certain processes running under Windows. For sure, if one allows the User Interface process to run constantly in the background (even when it is not really required), than you should expect a significant (about a 4% on my machine) CPU usage degradation to your system.

I have used this program for several years now and have 3 PRO licenses for our 3 main PCs. I run it on my 2 PCs because I'm always trying new things and some of them don't play nice. I can figure out what is getting jammed up and adjust its priorities to make it run smoother. My wife is into games and gets mad when there is any lag. Process Lasso takes priority away from troublemakers and allows her game play to be smoother. She does NOT like me putting "Crap" on her PC but Process Lasso is allowed because she sees a difference.

@19 Watcher1924

Actual http://www.anvir.com/task-manager-windows-startup.htm compares only AnVir Task Manager Free and Pro. But I think you are correct.
The GOTDs and other giveaways always were "AnVir Task Manager" without any suffix neither free nor pro. Perhaps some castrated Pro edition just for giveaways? But in constrast to free edition there is an essential feature valuable for our actual aim (accelerating windows) which gives further information about each autostart entry and a sort of evaluation. And as far as I remember you can shoot even entries which renew themselves after booting.

Sorry that I can't look up further details at my AnVir installation as I'm answering via Puppy Linux with actual Firefox 29.0.1 at the moment. And friends, Puppy is running fast even on old Pentium 3 or 4, actual P4 with 1 GB! I have configured Startup (Linux Autostart, simply by symbolic links into this folder) in order to connect to internet and open my two favorite browsers (Opera and Firefox) after boot. I just have dared to run IE inside WINE (sort of Windows emulator, but it isn't), something I wouldn't do under windows. Perhaps GOTD giveaways can be tried this way under Linux, too. Somebody ever tried?

But you know:
Old systems run faster even under windows if you restrict your usage of multitasking.

Not true. Every time I see this it will not install on my Windows Server 2003. It comes to a part that stated it needs to download the right edition for your OS. I select option to download, which it shows it "downloads" then just disappears and nothing.

In the past I have manually downloaded the version for 2003 that matches the GAOTD and even on the day it is free, but it will not register with the free version because it states it is not for windows 2003. Another Fail !

I have had luck with this on windows 7 and XP systems, would love to see how this runs on windows 2003 as mine sure needs some help.

I've been using Process Lasso for a couple of years and it does just what it claims, and does it quietly in the background while consuming less than 5meg RAM. And while it has enough configuration options to satisfy any tweaker, you can also just accept the defaults and leave it alone.

It isn't going to speed up a computer, it just makes it run more smoothly by not allowing background processes to interfere with foreground processes by limiting the resources allocated to the former. If you've ever had a game that usually runs fine but occasionally "stutters", the cause is often a background service that, for half a second, demands too many resources; Process Lasso virtually eliminates such occurrences.

Yes, if you have a computer capable of simultaneously running a gigabyte spreadsheet, streaming an HD movie, running RT analysis of 3D matrices, and flying FlightSim X, you'll probably not see any benefit to this utility. But for us average mortals with average systems this is definitely worth having.

Finally, after years of overrated statements, there is some people indicating that PL is, at best not very useful, at worst to avoid.

I retrieved what I wrote in 2012: «I have used the previous version from GAOTD.
Whatever I did as tunning, I didn’t see many much difference with or without PL.
My config is old -Win XPSP3 – AMD Athlon 64, 3.2 – 3G ram. I run only avast and commodo, many services are stopped.
Since the comments are always very good, I will try this version again but I would like that the people very enthusiasm with PL give specific exemples of the improvement(s) they noticed.»
The result ?: for my config, PL improved nothing and the lag (notably with opera, whatever the priority selected -ie low or high-) was rather more frequent and longer that without PL running.

It is interesting to note that a good rational to justify the soft and the favor of the KOL of this forum is not enough to make an application working effectively on your system.

The big advantage of this program is for controlling programs that can use up a lot of system resources, such as video processing. Try running four or five incidents of VirtualDub at the same time. And it's also useful when a program occasionally hangs and ties up the system. But most of the time when my machine runs normally I don't use it. I still like to have it on my system through.

I've been running the free version of it lately and I can't really see much difference between that and the paid version, aside from the wait time at the start and the ability to start the core engine at system boot.

I have a software which I have to use for a particular job, provided by the client themselves. But I guess the software isn't coded well, so whenever I launch it, it almost always starts with a window screen saying something like "waiting for another application to respond". And when I click it, the start menu pops up (in win7). I just have to click on the start menu to re-focus on my software. And I usually have to do this several times until the software finally starts.

So I changed the priorities of this software in Process Lasso, and voila, the software launches instantly now.

Process Lasso's development team already stated in their FAQ and forums that Process Lasso doesn't speed up the system. What it actually does (its main feature) is to improve the system's responsiveness when a program that has a "Normal" priority eats up too much CPU power. Because of this, Process Lasso helps eliminate micro-lags from heavily used computer system. Thus, overall system responsiveness improves.

I use Process Lasso and it's running great.

Thank you GAOTD and bitsum. I've used this for awhile and find it excellent. I updated via the installed program as others have, and the license was recognized.

@FrancisBorne, has anyone of the AnVir Task Manager editions given here been the Professional one? I think that the latest two belong to the Standard one.

My own experience of this program is that the optimisation function is not generally worth the cpu, so I choose the option of not starting it with Windows.

Nevertheless, it can be a very useful diagnostic tool for ascertaining what processes are hogging resources: I especially like the facility for identifying the relevant executable file on the hard drive.

Lasso is now running on 4 machines here, and a new laptop is now being configured. Great timing! Now there will be 5.

It's not just for speed, it's about fine tuning. Machines today are fast off the shelf, but still OS Stupid.

We won't run without it.

Four thumbs up.

I couldnt't access the registration license website below:


Website keep redirecting me to a china website.

For what did it do that, I'm not even in china.

Please fix the website link thank you.

Last year the same product was offered as GAOD.I have read all comments and downloaded and installed on my pc.
Initially it was really speeding up my system,but after about two weeks many problems appeared.
First it could not update the version.
Then all other complexity of problems-.
I checked and rechecked everything-my antivirus setting,my firewall settings,scanned for malware and viruses-all came up clean.Performed various command prompt tasks,disc clean up etc...
After a two month of torture I got fed up with Process Lasso!My pc became slower then ever.
I uninstalled the product and my pc is running at full speed again.
So,after a bitter experience I would NOT take Process Lasso and use it for one year even if the developers pay me $28.95!
