    Is Process Lasso Pro or Free still efficient/effective in the latest build of Windows 10?

    In Windows 8 and Windows 8.1, I found ProcessLasso helpful in diminishing and alleviating micro/macro lags on my weak and old netbook.

    But...I find the opposite on the latest build of Windows 10, using the same weak old netbook. I experience more lags now since installing this, grabbing a free license from a giveaway by Wonderfox.

    Obviously, maybe, I should uninstall.

    But pls, give me some technical info why Process Lasso is not that efficient anymore on my netbook?

    Nothing is black and white. With default settings, NO. Customized, YES, but it also depends on hardware. Low specs benefit more from it.
    Windows has got some prioritization based on a power profile (High Performance) and settings like Processor Scheduling in Windows 10/8/7

    I have used it for quite long and ultimately found that Windows runs better without it. Just my opinion.

    Personally I don't need it but I know many people use the tool for a variety of things

    About slowdown when using it, probably because the utility is constantly tracking data and this will consume up resources. The same way your CPU usage is increased when Task Manager is open because its using CPU usage to calculate the CPU usage and track other data like memory usage for other running programs. Every instruction executed uses CPU usage... High CPU usage = slower because CPU has a limit. High disk usage = slower because your HDD/SSD can only take so much at a time. The same way when you try to use more memory than you have = BSOD, or when hardly any is free = super slow and sort of a broken frozen feeling.

    I use it on lower spec servers to keep things tidy, with tweaks of course.

    Otherwise? No chance. It's never going on any desktop/laptop of mine.

    Park Control though, I use an older non-install version to unpark cores on gaming rigs.

    I would think this answer changes computer-to-computer depending on the hardware the computer uses and the software running on it.

    I run a laptop that is about 3 years old, running GTX 765, i7-4700 and I do a lot of photo editing on my computer

    I find that process lasso helps with reducing the usage of CPU and GPU when exporting the photos where as previously without any teaks exporting the photos would give me a BSOD where as now when I've limited the process to only take up 50% of the CPU it no longer BSOD

    In my opinion it does better then Windows... the evidence is less with more RAM and CPU cores, but if you often multi-task many tabs, games, etc.This can help any PC run a bit smoother and can prevent a sudden freeze.

    The app was effective when I was using Windows 8-8.1. But in Windows 10, my system suffered from more lags.

    Some really say it just provides placebo effect, but I disagree if you know how to use it. It is best to leave it on default settings and let it do the work. But if you are a geek and knows how to do a lot of tinkering, then it could serve you well.

    As for me, maybe I will uninstall it.

    Tested it on my Windows 10 x64 (Fall Creators Update) ring.
    Nothing impressive to make me keep it. (n)

    I recommend it. It doesn't claim to speed up your computer. Rather, it claims to bring back responsiveness. The owner has a synthetic application to test PL's ProBalance.

    @bitsum might be able to help as to why @ifacedown's experience is the opposite when it comes to Process Lasso's presence in Windows 10.

    I currently use CPUBalance. :)

    He dont show how he configure program or he even configure it if he run default after fresh install im not wonder why we dont see diference.....
    You need setup process to game mode and than enable it same with allocate process for specific core..

    If you run 20 browser than system can freez copule time becasue cant handle it...
    if you configure specific browsers for eech core stand alone you will get less or non freez that little tip prove how Process Lasso is usefull.
