Thread: Setting Priority on Specific Task

    I know how you can set the priority within the Processes Tab in Windows XP for any given process. My question is this..

    With Windows XP when you set a priority on a process it stays at the given process until you end that process. Upon restarting that process it goes back to the original priority which is normal. Is there any way I could tweak my registry so that Windows by default, will keep the new priority that I set for any given process?

    Cheers!

    I knew the first part, but I haven't found a way of making it permanent. BTW assigning a higher priority to a process can make it unstable as it might start sucking up 99% of CPU time and cause a crash on highly overclocked machines :)

    ..that is a possibility but regardless this is something that should be possible.

    the only way i've done it was though task manager, but like you said, it's not permanent

    within some apps you can change the prority, but this sounds like you want to change a system processes
    I've gone too far and need to move on!
