UNDER WINDOWS XP

If I want to dedicate most of my processor speed and memory usage to a certain program everytime I start the program.. How can I change that for good so when I start the program or computer it will be automaticcally setup for it??

situation:
If Im running the program already and go to the task manager, processes tab and highlight the certain program (lets says AutoCAD), right mouse click and set priority to HIGH.. the computer uses most of its resources for that program.. How do I set that for good... So I dont have to keep on doing the long way of it everytime I use the program and/or reboot??

i want to change the priority of a running program to stay HIGH all the time, when I reboot the computer too...

check with microsoft but i think you can add a command to the a short cut to run high and launch from this short cut

well under windows NT you would use :

start/low notepad
start/high notepad
start/realtime notepad

i do not use XP but i would imagine it's the same

to test

from the command prompt run the 3 commands above then have a look in task manager and see the difference

you would then make a batch file of this command ( say startmyprog.bat) in notepad and put it in the startup menu to auto start your pogram on boot)

Thanks... I tried doing it with another program.. AutoCAD and it still brought it in as NORMAL...

First I had to make a shortcut and put it under the windows directory to make it work but it still puts it at NORMAL..

any suggestions??

Thanks!
