How to automatically reduce the priority of gluttonous programs?

With simultaneous work with numerous applications, one often has to face one unpleasant feature, at what time some resource-intensive programs also strive to take away a tasty piece of processor time in the operating system, paralyzing the execution of other processes.

Of course, it is allowed to use the Windows Task Manager to also lower the priority of the "gluttonous" process. It would seem that everything is trivial, but sometimes even getting to the rescue dispatcher is not so easy, especially under conditions when the processor gave the soul also a soul to some Stakhanov program. In such a situation, after a long, also tedious waiting for the Task Manager window to "revive," the hand itself already involuntarily reaches out to the Reset button ...

So, how well is it possible to automate the task of forcing priority reduction in "greedy" programs without waiting for manual intervention? The objection is simple, like all ingenious ones - use the Process Tamer utility .

Processor "is designed for installation in Windows 2000 / XP and also takes 1.4 MB in the distribution.The program does not ask for any capital, but anyone can contribute to the development of this project.

When you load Process Tamer scrupulously turns into the system tray, it also vigilantly watches every running process. In the event that any application goes beyond what is allowed, then the utility automatically changes its priority or operates according to the established rules. The latter, to the place, is allowed to be configured for every program on the computer.

Process Tamer parameters allow you to specify the critical edges of the CPU usage, as well as the time interval after which the "Tamer" will become quiet or "hack off" the raging process.

In addition to the flattering features, it is allowed to include the support of the Drag-and-drop function (which greatly facilitates the configuration of the utility), the ability to autoload the log file also with a detailed report on the work of the program, but there is also a mechanism for balloon tips. In general, install, configure, and use.
