After installing a few Windows Vista updates, my notebook computer started running hot non-stop. I became very concerned about the heat and constantly running fan. In addition, video playback became choppy.
Live with it or system install?
No matter what tweak, system restore or uninstall I tried, nothing improved. I came to the conclusion that I had two choices: live with the heat and choppy video, or reinstall the entire Vista operating system and start from scratch.
The very thought of a complete system reinstall was depressing.
Forum participant advice to the rescue
Before doing anything else, I decided to discuss the problems in an online forum. As often is the case, a forum participant came to the rescue and suggested a program called Process Lasso developed by Bitsum Technologies. Process Lasso is touted to be “the ultimate process priority optimization and automation software” that improves a PC’s “responsiveness and stability during periods of high CPU load. “
Though initially reluctant to chance messing up my notebook any further, I decided to give it a try. I downloaded and installed the free version of Process Lasso.
Process Lasso delivers
It worked! Video now runs smoother than ever before where ever I view it. And my notebook computer runs cool.
I have no idea how Process Lasso works, only that it does.
After a quick and easy installation, Process Lasso begins to go to work immediately. Once installed, the program places a green square icon in the right bottom of the system tray that lets you know the program is running.
Advanced users can tweak the configuration, which looks intimidating to non-tech savvy persons like me. However following the installation, nothing more has to be done. My notebook is purring once again like a kitten.
If you want to prevent system stalls and improve the responsiveness of your Windows-based computer, check out Process Lasso.
