Process Lasso alternative: automatically adjust process priority

Even with enough memory Windows can come to a halt again. The culprit is the clumsy distribution of process priorities on Windows. With the right freeware you here but to improve.

Process priority affects the system load

Each program is running on Windows with a specific priority, regardless of whether this is the browser, mail client, or media player. By default, comes all non-system processes to a normal priority. Typically, this process is not a problem, but it can at peak load times (including when the backup program starts up) get to bucking. Process Lasso ** automatically distributes the processing power and priority according to rules. In the free version, however, the registration reminder interfere. Our alternative ** Bill2's Process Manager also distribute the process priority - and all without nagscreen. We provide the process manager.

Set process priority rule

  • Now we create a first rule for Firefox. It is our desire that the Mozilla browser is always performed with the highest priority. Start to Firefox. If you have not installed the browser can download Mozilla Firefox here. He is then displayed in the process list. Click with the right mouse button firefox and then Create a rule for this process. bill2's Process Manager - Regeleinstellungen

  • Under the tab "normal window" activate the option Set priority and select High out. Go to the tab Minimized window or hidden process and here again successively on Set priority and High.

  • We would also not be disturbed by tooltips. Just activate the tab Options and enable the options Do not show a tooltip When priority or affinity is set and Do not show a tooltip When applying automatic priority. Accept the settings with OK.

find hidden processes

Some programs do not appear immediately in the process list of Bill2's Process Manager. It may be the backup program that is carried out at a certain time and runs in the background. But such processes can be prioritized automatically Bill2's Process Manager.

Under the previously described function "Set priority" the option Set affinity and (de) activate any number of CPU cores. The program then accesses example only return to the cores. 1 and 2 An example: The browser uses only core 1, while the backup is running on the cores 2,3 and 4. FIG. Thus stuttering be minimized. With these first steps, you have come a little closer to the judder system. not expect, however, that the settings are perfect. Depending on the amount of RAM and program utilization you need to experiment with the settings and find the optimal balance. So it may be that you still need to set a higher or lower priority for an application. Try it!
