Running Windows 7 SP-1, there is a process which requires 'real time' priority, and it works properly when that is configured.  After some time, the process reverts to 'Below Normal' without any user intervention.  How can that be prevented?

"The changes you make to the priority level of the current instance of an application or process are only temporary and not set permanently.

Once you close the application or restart your system, Windows forgets your custom priority and automatically assigns the default priority back to this process or application."

Thank you for your comment.  I tried Prio Process Priority Saver, but I encountered an unexpected issue with internet browsers being unable to connect to any website.  That resolved after uninstalling Prio.  Reinstalling it without the Network Driver appears to have corrected that.
