    Is there a way that you can change the default priority levels of a program that autostarts on bootup in order not to have to wait till system is booted and use task manager to manually adjust them?

    Hi Curt,

    My thing I want to do is this, have the particular program that autostarts boot with a different priority level. If you change it with Task Manager, it is only for that session. If you restart the program or reboot, it goes back to the default priority level. I want to be able to change them and have them 'stick' thru a restart or reboot.

    Hi puff-m-d, this could be what you're looking for. I havn't tried it, but i have used his Attribute Changer App only today, and it's Very good.

    -

    StartRight will manage the execution of programs that are automatically started by the operating system at logon time. Instead of executing many programs at once (causing your OS to spit and sputter and attack your hard drive), StartRight will give the OS time to execute the program before running the next program. The OS should become much more responsive almost imediately after logon.

    Those of you that have a dozen system tray programs (and you know who you are), might want to give this a try.


    Features:
    - program executing ordering
    - custom delays
    - Auto-Tune delays based on CPU usage (optional)
    - new item notification (optional)
    - automatically disable all new programs (optional)
    - pause or stop program execution (optional)

    Check out the Known Problems down the page first just to be sure it's ok for you. Please post back and let us know how it went if you do install it.

    All of the above posts give me a bit to look over. I am going to take a few days to look over what has been posted and report back my results.

    In the meantime, if anyone else has any suggestions, they will be more than welcome.

    Thanks to all for the suggestions so far ;) ...

    Wintasks Pro 5 has some neat capabilities ... I don't know if the priority levels will stick, but I think they might ... also has 5 pre-sets you can set for processes etc.

    I'll have to finally check this out myself. :)

    You might also check out ProcessTamer. Version 2 will let you assign specific CPU priorities to specific processes when they start, but the default function may just do what you want. RegRun also has some functions for changing or delaying startup items.

    will this help? ServiWin
    http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/serviwin.html
    it's a standalone, none install.

    EDIT i just had alook and so far i don't think it will do it, sorry :(

    NirExt
    this program says it will do "Priority: Specifies the priority level for the application you run. For most applications, you should select the Normal Priority. However, if you have a very critical application that need a better priority over the other applications, you can try to run it with high priority.
