    I installed it. Will there be a noticeable difference in performance?
    What does the “Boost Explorer” in the Boost Settings tab do? Does the box need
    to be “checked/selected” in order for the other settings to work (i.e. Refresh, set active
    window and force inactive window)?

    Tried this settings:
    * Don’t boost explorer
    * Set active window to : AboveNormal
    * Force inactive window to: BelowNormal

    Works awesome!

    Can this be set to “Refresh on every focus change/window switch”?

    Thank you, it’s a great app. Simple so even a newbie like me can use it.

    Downloaded and the window comes up small with no “exit” or “close” buttons and no way to enlarge the window. Using NET.4 and have 3.5 installed as well on Windows Vista. Is there a way to see the buttons or enlarge the window for the program?

    Everything seems to be working, so I will let it go on even though I am missing those buttons.

    In the application settings I check the “start with Windows” box but it only stays there for one boot and I have to recheck it.

    would be great to have an option to run as a service (no taskbar icon) and for programs idling for 5 min can be st to low priority with an option to change cpu affinity to 0 when set at low priority. 🙂

    Please, Please keep developing this. It is an amazing freeware. You need to set up a donations link so we can send you money to develop faster…

    I use topwinprio in combination with gamebooster freeware software. It smooths the games very well.

    No publicity intended.

    I think topwinprio manages priority in a better way.

    Nevertheless, Great Work.

      Yes I do this too. Now I can max every game I own with almost 60 fps at 1080p.

    I am having the same problem as geraldmfw,the program will only start with Windows the first time the box is checked then will not start with the 2nd boot. I have manually entered the start command into the registry,but that disappears with the 2nd boot. I have added the programs folder to the exclusion list lof my antivirus(avast). The beta3 version would start with Windows everytime,but then other stuff didn’t work well. Right now I am using the .exe only version of the program with it’s folder in the exclusion list of my AV,but the only way I can get it to start with Windows is to create a shortcut to the program and place it in the all users startup folder. Please fix!
    My computer: OS: XP pro sp3 with 3ghz P4,3GB ram,2 160 GB internal HDs & 1 500GB external HD,ATI 1024mb video card,Sound Blaster Live sound card,1 wired_1 wireless ethernet cards with cable internet,DVD/CD ROM,CD writer and an external DVD writer.

    I downloaded TopWinPrio — system using Vista Ultimate Service Pack 2. Program shows up in Start menu — but when I click on it, nothing happens. Please help!

    Yes – it shows “LunaWorX.net TopWinPrio”

    Do you have any idea why I am getting this error whenever I start or exit the program?


    Unhandled exception has occurred in your application. If you click Continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue. If you click Quit, the application will close immediately.

    Configuration system failed to initialize.


    This is followed by three buttons: Details, Continue, and Quit. If I hit Continue, the application seems to run okay… but this happens all the time and it’s incredibly annoying.

    I am running Framework 3.5, by the way.


    I could send you the details from the error message, if you want to send me your E-mail address.

    I did the full installation. It’s very perplexing. If you offer any newer versions, I might give them a try, but I’m going to uninstall the current application.

    I DL’d TopWinPrio and have installed it on my PC and Acer laptop and it looks and works fine there. I DL’d and installed it on my VAIO, twice, and the application window does not show the ‘exit and close’ buttons. If I right click it on the taskbar and click ‘close’, it exits the app. I uninstalled it again because it doesn’t seem to be working correctly. Thank you

    I can not even install it, I get the message “The system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation” I am running windows 7, 64. Not sure what else to do, this is the first time ever seeing this message. I was going to try to install as administrator but that option is not even there, can you help?

    Have you tested this on Windows 9? Your discussion above only show it working up to windows 7. I saw this in a Kim Kommando msg but am afraid to use it unless I know that it will work on my version.

    Using it under Win8. It threw an exception (the portable ver, run as admin) for _idle_priority (?).

    hit me up if I can help with anything…

    Loved the program, but won’t work with W8+. Used with 7 and xp, came back when Kim K said it worked with Windows. It is still restricted to 7 or less.
    Unfortunate. I would like to promote it . More I really liked it.

    I just installed TopWinPrio on my fairly new machine running Win7 Prof. I would like to emphasize that it did make a positive difference that I can definitely see. Whether it is speed or smoothness I can’t be sure, I feel it might be speed because I noticed the difference when switching from file to file within the
    program itself.
    AT any rate this definitely is under the category of
    “undercover little gem” as far as programming is concerned.
    I am definitely buying you a cup of coffee, please keep me informed
    of any updates to this guy!

    When downloading with Firefox, which should be the “Active Window”: ‘Firefox Library’ or ‘Firefox Browser’?

    I have been using TopWinPrio for years!! I’m not sure what version I have but I think it is probably the first version. There is no way of telling as does not have any software information inside the program window. I guess my question is are there different versions? If so, what is the newest version so that I can update if necessary. Thank you for your time.
