Get app that saves process priorities!
Lower priority of cpu hungry processes!
Share here youre stories please!

I have fixed my win7/64/Ultimate with "Process Hacker 2".. My pc now runs 3D demos and games and cad like an Arcade Machine!
Process Hacker is an awsome Task Manager replacement for beginners and especially experts!!
5% Higher Frame rate and no more missing frames.
Sort processes on "Total cpu time"
Biggest first!
Lower 30 Most consuming "Normal"
priority processes to "Lower than Normal" priority.Also enable "Save"
Don't touch higher priorities (Are rare)!

not sure if there is any app is resource hungry in my system, nor if there is any freeware software that saves process priorities.

but about one year ago, i made a software that gets information about every process running in this system. (including base priority, class priority and threads priority)

If you have a multi-core CPU (which most consumer systems have had for about a decade now), the OS scheduler should do a good enough job on ensuring responsiveness even for CPU hungry tasks.

Of course, there are exceptions:

  • Multi-thread programs exhausting all available cores.
  • Heavy disk and I/O - the Windows I/O scheduler and prioritization is not great.
  • CPU throttling - a single core that's heavily loaded can cause the entire CPU (and hence tasks on other cores) to be throttled down.


I remember there was a program on www.donationcoder.com (early to mid 2000s, when uniprocessor systems dominated) that lowered the priority of CPU hungry tasks.
