Process Lasso is NOT yet another task manager. It is a process priority optimization and system automation utility. Priority optimization, affinity optimization, core optimization, automated rules, automated power schemes, you name it and Process Lasso has it.
- - Process Lasso is the most popular Windows alternative to cpulimit.
vtop is a graphical command-line tool that uses unicode braille to chart CPU and memory usage. It can be easily extended.
This tool controls programs, disk, CPU. Replace task manager, tweak and tune up XP or Vista. Speed up windows startup. Get rid of spyware and viruses.Warning

Top-like interface for container metrics. ctop provides a concise and condensed overview of real-time metrics for multiple containers as well as a single container view for inspecting a specific container.
Mz CPU Accelerator is an application that automatically changes the priority of the foreground window, by allocating more CPU power to the currently active application (program-game). It automatically de-allocates CPU priority when a new active application is used.Discontinued

Process Tamer is a tiny utility that monitors the CPU usage of running processes and automatically lowers the priority of processes that are overloading the CPU until their CPU usage returns to a reasonable level.
Limits CPU power to applications based on percentage CPU limit (per target process) ou or suspend target processes. The program permit add process using wildcard and actions triggered.
timelimit executes a command and terminates the spawned process after a given time with a given signal. A “warning” signal is sent first, then, after a timeout, a “kill” signal, similar to the way init(8) operates on shutdown.
Ananicy (ANother Auto NICe daemon) — is a shell daemon created to manage processes' IO and CPU priorities, with community-driven set of rules for popular applications (anyone may add their own rule via github's pull request mechanism). It's mainly for desktop usage.
