Applications that don't self-regulate

The following list of applications are known to lack proper self-regulation capabilities. Process Lasso has been tested against them. To add to this list, please email support@bitsum.com.

Application name: Carbonite
Process name: CarboniteService.exe
Category: Backup software
Context: SYSTEM service
Problem: Does not sufficiently lower its own priority, causing micro-lags and stalls as it scans the file system for changes. It does offer a 'Low Priority' option though, but this doesn't do enough (IMHO).
Solution: Process Lasso will handle it, but it must be set to manage processes of other users and run with highest rights (except in v3.99.8+, where the default config will work)

Application name: WD Smartware
Process name: WDFME.EXE
Category: Backup software
