Mz CPU Accelerator + Process Lasso

Positive Comment by blackboard
about Process Lasso and Mz CPU Accelerator Mar 2012

Mz CPU Accelerator + Process Lasso work great together! Mz CPU Accelerator speeds up the program you're using, and Process Lasso slows down the ones you aren't using. Neither is perfect at doing what the other does, although Process Lasso can do weaker job of what Mz CPU Accelerator does.
