Tune Up Windows 7 By Changing Process Priorities

                    Do you think that any particular application is running too slow in your Windows 7? Sometimes the application we are using run quite slowly while other less important apps run perfectly fine, this is because Windows assigns equal priority to every program. You can increase the priority of any application by increasing the priority of it’s process, in this way Windows will give more resources to a program who’s priority is high. It is very easy to increase/decrease the priorities of any particular process in Windows 7.

Note: Changing process priorities should be a last-ditch resort. While this may work, it also can cause your system to become unstable and possibly crash. Save all open files before trying this.

1. Right-click on an empty area of the Windows 7 Taskbar.
2. Select "Start Task Manager". Or simply hit the following hotkey Ctrl+Shift+Esc. This will directly open TaskManager.
3. The multi-tabbed "Windows Task Manager" should appear. Make sure the "Applications" tab is selected.

4. If the process you need to change is linked to an application, right-click it and choose "Go to Process" from the pop-up menu that appears.

5. Otherwise, click the "Processes tab" to find a process you need to change.
6. Right-click a process and select "Set Priority". If you cannot find the process that needs its priority changed, click the "Show processes from all users" button. You may have to confirm your action via User Account Control.
7. From here you can select from the following possible priorities (highest to lowest):
  •  Realtime
  •  High
  •  Above Normal
  •  Normal
  •  Below Normal
  •  Low

8. If you are sure you want to change the process priority, click the "Change priority" button when prompted.

Note: "Changing the priority of certain processes could cause system instability."

Note: Depending on the process and your administrative rights to your machine, you may not be able to change a particular process's priority.

There is software named as Digeus I use it when windows chashes, hangs or works slow. I also recommend to use Windows Tune Up Suite. It is the smartest way to solve computer problems.
