Hi, I have noticed that when I run certain applications, Windows 7 decides to auto-change the base priority to a lower value. This occurs even when I still have plenty of available memory and cpu to give. This always causes the application to run laggy. So manually setting base priority does nothing. Windows 7 disregards my settings. Is there a reason for this?
The behaviour I prefer is that when a user sets a base priority of NORMAL, the application will have its minimum priority set to NORMAL and not auto change it to a lower value. I mean, that's what *BASE* priority means - right? The way its behaving now, the column should be called 'variable priority'.
Is there some setting/app I can use to force an application to maintain the base priority I specify?
I never had issues like this when I had XP 32bit installed on this same laptop, even when 3 or more instances of the same app was installed. It ran smooth.
I have tried:
- running application via command prompt using: start /<priority> <program>
- used Prio app: Prio - Priority Saver
But nothing works
I am running Windows 7 Ultimate (build 7601) 64-bit with 4 GB RAM.
Thanks for any help.
