I should be a little careful about overriding these too - usually an app sets its priorty in an informed way and you can mess with the stability of your system overriding things like this, or you may just think you are speeding things up and introduce problems.
Anyway the link is there if you must have it - I have never used this so no recommendation implied though.
you can probably do it with a batch file to launch the app...the only other way is hackking the app or hacking the os.
it's actually possible to hack the os, You need to find a copy of imagecfg.exe. This shipped with the NT4 product CD (in \support\debug\i386) and with the Windows 2000 Server Resource Kit Supplement One.
it will probably hurt performance though, and destabalize the box...I can't in good concience give you directions how to do it...if you know what you'r doing you should be able to track down the metrhod with the info I just posted
Thanks, that program seems to do the trick. I set "high priority" as default while I leave the comp running overnight. Because I use Autogk (a divx encoding program), it automatically starts new applications (or the sames ones over and over) so I need something to automatically set it to high.
Just got to make sure I turn it off when I use the PC during the day, otherwise every program i start will be high, and probably make the system unstable
Unfotunately, that program doesnt work for my needs, and nor will the batch file I think.
The problem is, is that autogk starts the program itself (rather than the user clicking on the .exe), so unless I hack the code (near impossible I'd imagine)to autogk I don't think there is a way around.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
