Lasso a faster PC

Speed up your computer with this simple priority creator.

Process Lasso is an interesting tool for speeding up your computer. By prioritizing its processes, this program helps improve an operating system's performance.

The program's interface is both helpful-looking, with a clean design and simple charts, and discouraging, with some highly technical command options. We were constantly spending time with and revisiting the program's Help file for instructions. The program's display clearly showcased all currently running processes and provided a suspected CPU usage chart--"suspected," because it didn't explain what any of the three bar charts represented. The visual aids were nice, but the program didn't shine until we explored the Operation Configurations. Here we were able to reorganize the priority of each process with a game-playing setting, an antisleep setting, a high-performance setting, and the ability to completely rearrange the priorities manually. Applications that normally were sluggish showed a notable speed difference when operating after Process Lasso did its thing. The program's strongest feature is its customizable view, which allows you to view specific elements of running processes, such as the amount of memory they're using, how long they've been open, and more. Though Process Lasso required diligent study of the Help file, it paid off in a speedier computer.

Process Lasso has a nag screen during its trial, and it also claims program access limits, but we didn't encounter any. It comes as a compressed file. This program was somewhat confusing at times, but it ultimately provided a useful service, and we recommend it.
