I came up with the idea of changing the priority of my tasks to high from low. I am hoping Windows will less likely steal clock cycles for background tasks. The only problem is, I have to do it each time a new Primegrid task starts. That is ok if it is a long task but not practical on short ones.

Is there anyway to change the default setting for this? Is this a BOINC thing or can anyone here at Primegrid change anything?
