Setting application priority in Task manager

by caktus / January 22, 2008 11:42 PM PST

I am using XP Home.

After closing the Task manager an applications new priority setting for avgas.exe (AVG Anti-Spyware) reverts back to "Normal". Is there a way to save the new priority setting other than leaving the Task manager open and the computer on?

Couldn't figure out how to edit the tool. Tried opening it in Notepad but the contents is all Martian to me. But when I click on it's exe what ever is there just runs in the blink of an eye. But the web page taught me how to manually accomplish my goal. Now instaed of taking 25-30 seconds for avgas.exe to open and it making me manually scan a file, it now takes 5 seconds and scans automatically. Happy
