I've now added to the InstallHelper application the ability to choose whether you want Process Lasso and its core engine running at highest available rights or not (and therefore managing process of other/system users). You will be prompted for this choice, along with the startup types of the GUI and the governor, at time of install. To change this setting you simply need to re-run the InstallHelper application, or re-run the installer itself.

Note that you won't see this until beta 6 gets uploaded, which should be a few minutes. Some testing and polishing remains to be done.

Note that I still do not recommend setting this as the default unless you need to manage other user/system processes. By design, Process Lasso is intended to have one instance running per-user, and on multi-user systems things can get confusing if multiple users are logged in and multiple Process Lasso instances are adjusting the same set of processes at the same time.
