ProcessTamer / Discrepancy between GUI and tray
« on: April 02, 2005, 01:33 PM »
I'm confused by an apparent disconnect between what's going on among the tray app, the GUI, The Windows Task Mgr, and a utility called FreeMeter. For example, for the last several minutes the tray has said winlogon.exe was being tamed, but the GUI said it was using 0/0 CPU. Also, FreeMeter usually shows a far higher CPU rate than the percentages in GUI. FreeMeter sometimes is consistently at 100% but the GUI shows very low CPU utilization  and nothing is tamed even after a long wait. This is even after adjusting the slider control almost halfway.

What accounts for the wide discrepancy? In the end what I care about most is whether my system is bogged down, but this is puzzling.

I'm using v2b6; might b8 be different?

I'm using W2K. How will I find the test app? I appreciate your help!

I understand that. However, the system tray icon has yet to indicate that it's acted on any process, and my system was as unresponsive with PT as without.

(Incidentally, the bubble, which I have yet to see, apparently misspells Priority.)

ProcessTamer / Process Tamer won't work
« on: March 31, 2005, 12:26 PM »
This is precisely the type of program I've been seeking, but it doesn't seem to work on my W2K system. As I write, my CPU utilization has been pegged at ~100% due to a Panda antivirus scan, but PT apparently hasn't acted (it IS enabled). I have yet to get it to act in a few days of testing. Any suggestions? Thanks.
