'Process Lasso', and 'File Shield'

Dennis Faas's picture

Process Lasso

Process Lasso automatically adjusts the allocation of CPU cycles to programs so that system responsiveness is improved in high-load situations. It does this by dynamically lowering the priorities of processes that are consuming too many CPU cycles, thereby giving other processes a chance to run if they are in need. This is useful for both single and multi-core processors. No longer will a single process be able to bring your system to a virtual stall. In addition, Process Lasso offers capabilities such as default process priorities, default process CPU affinities, termination of disallowed processes, and logging of processes executed.


File Shield

File Shield is file protecting software. Think of it is a password protected box that can contain your files. You only need to distribute the box, and every person trying to gain access to it needs a password -- you can even set expiry dates. This application needs no installation either on the protectors machine or the viewers machine.
