Probalance Acts On A Non-Normal Priority Process FIXED 7.9.7.9b

Probalance is acting on a High priority process even if the Probalance setting is set to ignore non-normal priority processes.

Whenever I work on my laptop while ccleaner.exe is running, I see Probalance acting on it. CCleaner is set to run in High priority. Probalance, acting on Ccleaner process, changes its CPU affinity. Actually, I manually set the Probalance setting to automatically change CPU affinity whenever the Probalance acts on a process. However, given that Probalance is set to ignore non-normal priority, it shouldn't therefore act on that particular process. Priority of the acted process is still the same (High), but the affinity is changed and is logged by Process Lasso.

My cursory analysis is that this is a bug.

ProBalance will exclude the non-normal priority class process by not changing it's priority class, but it may go on to take other, user configured, actions.

I am adjusting the code now. 7.9.5.9 beta should have it fixed.

Thank you, and my sincere apologies.
