Control active processes and avoid CPU abuse

Multitasking enables you to open many applications simultaneously, although this usually results in many processes hogging the CPU. Sometimes a single active process takes up so many resources that the whole system becomes unstable and may end up freezing. View full description

Multitasking enables you to open many applications simultaneously, although this usually results in many processes hogging the CPU. Sometimes a single active process takes up so many resources that the whole system becomes unstable and may end up freezing.

You can use Process Tamer to prevent these situations. It's a small tool that sits unobtrusively in Windows system tray and controls all active processes. As soon as any of them goes beyond the limits you set in the program's configuration settings, Process Tamer will lower its priority and therefore get the situation back to normal.

The program's options enable you to set the threshold of reaction, which is based only on CPU activity (no RAM memory, for example). You can also set rules and filters applied to specific applications.

Process Tamer is a tiny and super efficient utility that runs in your system tray and constantly monitors the cpu usage of other processes. When it sees a process that is overloading your cpu, it reduces the priority of that process temporarily, until its cpu usage returns to a reasonable level.

There are many times when a process will hog your cpu, such as when converting audio/video files, or working with compressed archives. Because these processes completely consume the cpu, your system becomes sluggish to respond and using the computer for other tasks becomes impossible while these processes are running.

Process Tamer solves this problem by identifying such these degenerate conditions and temporarily reducing the priority of the offending processes in order to allow your system to respond to other requests. Stop being a victim to an overloaded cpu - let Process Tamer keep your system responsive no matter what you're doing.
