When activating AntiFreeze Emergency Task Manager
This option allows you to choose whether AntiFreeze should suspend any running programs when it's activated. If programs
are so invasive that they take up all resources and leave your system unresponsive, you may need to suspend them to gain
back access to your system in an emergency situation. Note however that suspending the wrong process may cause your system to hang, therefore certain
processes will never get suspended by AntiFreeze. Programs that are listed in the Exclusion list will also never get suspended.
Only suspend processes which have been running for at least .. seconds
Setting this value will prevent AntiFreeze from suspending processes that have not been invasive and consuming a considerable amount
of CPU time.
The exclusions tab will allow you to enter the names of processes (one per line) that you wish to exclude from getting suspended
by the AntiFreeze task manager, whenever it's activated. There is no need to include path names.
