Process Lasso is a unique new technology intended to automatically adjust the allocation of CPU cycles so that system responsiveness is improved in high-load situations. It does this by dynamically temporarily lowering the priorities of processes that are consuming too many CPU cycles, there-by 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. Process Lasso does all this while consuming almost no system resources thanks to being written in native C++ code, using native win32 APIs complimented with NT native APIs for process management (instead of toolhelp or psapi). Also, we used advanced data structures to track processes in the most efficient way possible. No other competing product can claim the efficiency of Process Lasso .....(free).....

The Windows NT and Windows 2000 Resource Kits come with a number of command-line tools that help you administer your Windows NT/2K systems. This is a collection of similar tools, including some not included in the Resource Kits. What sets these tools apart is that they all allow you to manage remote systems as well as the local one. The first tool in the suite was PsList, a tool that lets you view detailed information about processes, and the suite is continually growing. The "Ps" prefix in PsList relates to the fact that the standard UNIX process listing command-line tool is named "ps", so I've adopted this prefix for all the tools in order to tie them together into a suite of tools named PsTools. Note: some anti-virus scanners report that one or more of the tools are infected with a "remote admin" virus. None of the PsTools contain viruses, but they have been used by viruses, which is why they trigger virus notifications. The tools included in the PsTools suite, which are downloadable as a package, are: PsExec - execute processes remotely, PsFile - shows files opened remotely, PsGetSid - display the SID of a computer or a user, PsInfo - list information about a system, PsKill - kill processes by name or process ID, PsList - list detailed information about processes, PsLoggedOn - see who's logged on locally and via resource sharing (full source is included), PsLogList - dump event log records, PsPasswd - changes account passwords, PsService - view and control services, PsShutdown - shuts down and optionally reboots a computer, PsSuspend - suspends processes, PsUptime - shows you how long a system has been running since its last reboot (PsUptime's functionality has been incorporated into PsInfo). All of the utilities in the PsTools suite work on Windows Vista, Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows Server 2003. The PsTools download package includes an HTML help file with complete usage information for all the tools.....(free).....

What is Port Triggering Initiator? When you use port triggering on your router a connection attempt must be made from your computer to an address on the trigger port. When you router detects the connection attempt your router then turns on the ports, thus you have port triggering, a on/off switch for port forwarding. Well the problem comes if you are using port trigging for a program that doesn't make a connection attempt, such as say a ftp server or hosting a game. If a connection is never detected the router never enables the ports. Well that's what Port Triggering Initiator is designed for. You enter the triggering port to make a connection on and give it a address outside your network. Any address will do even if the connection fails its the attempt that triggers the port
Have you ever wondered why you can pin applications to the start menu, but you can't pin folders? There's a number of articles around that tell you how to pin them using complicated registry hacks, but there's actually a very simple way to do it
A PURL is a Persistent Uniform Resource Locator. Functionally, a PURL is a URL. However, instead of pointing directly to the location of an Internet resource, a PURL points to an intermediate resolution service. The PURL resolution service associates the PURL with the actual URL and returns that URL to the client. The client can then complete the URL transaction in the normal fashion. In Web parlance, this is a standard HTTP redirect
When you access the Internet with your web browser, a lot of things happen that are hidden to you. The browser and the website exchange "headers" that define the behaviour of the browser's cache system, create or use cookies, tell the website who you are and where you came from, and so on. Moreover, the page's html code contains hidden tags or javascript programs that control the browser's behaviour, such as "mouse-over" animation, page layering, URL masking or pop-up messages. And last but not least, the page often contains ads and banners that pollute the screen and slow down your web experience. Proximodo acts as a mediator between the browser and the website. It "sees" everything that is going on and, according to your choices, modifies headers and html page content on-the-fly to make things right. You don't want pop-ups and banners? Just activate the corresponding filters and they will disappear. You want cookies to be deleted when you close your browser? Proximodo will do it for you. You want a fast navigation in the pages you already visited? Page caching will be forced. Basically, Proximodo is a clone of a great piece of software called The Proxomitron, developed by Scott R. Lemmon. Now that for sad reasons Proxomitron is unmaintained, I started this project to carry on the idea. Though a few Proxomitron features are still missing in Proximodo (mainly SSL support) the essential is already there: 100% of Proxomitron filters will run under Proximodo (plus there is a menu to import your custom Proxomitron filters). Proximodo currently comes with default Proxomitron filters, which can do quite a lot of different things. But you can write your own filters, using a powerful syntax that, despite its seeming complexity, is quite easy to use and master.

Proxomitron lets you view the web the way YOU want. Getting rid of many common annoyances is as simple as clicking on one of the filtering rules included with the program, but best of all, the Proxomitron's rules aren't "hard-coded". You can look at them, modify them, even write entirely new ones! If you know some HTML, you'll find the Proxomitron allows you to personally customize just about any web page you view. You'll no longer be at some web-master's tender mercy. Even if you know no HTML, you'll find the included rules give you far more control than you've ever had before, and my hopes are that other Proxomitron user will contribute useful rules they've written for the benefit of everyone. Besides filtering web pages, The Proxomitron also allows you to control the normally hidden HTTP header messages that pass between your browser and the outside world. Many people are unaware that this covert conversation is even taking place, yet it can reveal all sorts of information. See exactly what your web browser has to say, then have it tell the world only what you want! Even those notorious "cookies" can be deleted or modified if you wish. Proxomitron: a free, highly flexible, user-configurable, small but very powerful, local HTTP web-filtering proxy
