You can use the Windows Task Manager. Press Ctrl-Alt-Delete and click Task Manager in the Windows Security dialog box. Select the Processes tab. Right-click on the process you wish to prioritize, and click Set Priority. Then choose a higher (or lower) priority for the process.

Hope this helps.

Well, for services the priority to start at is hard coded into the program. Some will let you change this, others won't. Each will be configured differently, some in a window config area, others in the registry. As for programs you need to load during login or while logged in, you can use the START command through the DOS prompt, a short cut, or bat file. For more info, go to the DOS console and type "START /? | MORE" you need the pipe & more command, or the help scrolls to fast! MS TechNet article Q191771 explains this command in detail, and Q192822 and Q106253 explain some of it's limitations. There maybe a third party util to force new prioritys on programs that are already running, but I am not aware of one. Most services will not let you change the priortiy while they are running. Hope this helps!
