Set the CPU priority processes (via Task Manager Set Priority)

Operating System WindowsAllows the setting of priorities CPU response la running on the system (present in Windows Task Manager). So if a process (firefox.exe, for example) has priority set "Hight", and iexplorer.exe is set priority level "Normal", response time to CPU for firefox.exe will be much lower compared to that of iexplorer.exe and other lower priority processes.
