Quote from: sciensum on February 26, 2018, 10:05:14 AMHello,Recently I've been noticing an occasional abnormally high CPU usage by Process Lasso itself, and often it happens when seemingly no activity is performed by it (i.e. nothing printed to the PL log at the times of high utilization)No dramatic changes have been applied to the OS (with exception of official MS "Meltdown" patches), no new software has been deployed. The behavior is similar on several machines.Few details:After 48h of system uptime, 5 hours of CPU time are credited to Process Lasso, making it's the 4th top offender in terms of CPU use. PL CPU usage fluctuates between 1% to 25%, often staying at 20% for quite a while. The system CPU is 2C/4T, so this has quite a noticeable negative effect.Do you have any recommendations? Is this a known issue?(P.S: I've been using PL for many years now quite happily. Thanks for the great SW!)

The usage does seem to go down with avast off, but I haven't tested it for a long enough time to have a conclusive opinion on that.I do suspect, however that there's something similar to the MalwareByte's saga going on here as well.Is there a way to obtain more logging from ProcessLasso.exe? I tried to monitor it with Process Monitor, but wasn't able to observe what can cause the excessive CPU usage
