Setting process priority on applications that require Run as Admin

    I switched a couple of months back from XP to vista, and have been having
    issues with not being able to get some applications up into Above Normal or
    High priority mode. These applications require the Run as Administrator
    setting to work correctly, but whenever I try to increase there priority I
    get the error:
    The operation could not be completed.

    Access is denied.

    My account is an administrator account, and I've spent 6 or 7 hours
    searching for a fix to this.
    Please help me :(

    How are you trying to change their priorities?
    You can try running task manager as administrator:

    1. Type "task manager" (without the quotes) in the search box from the start
    2. When it shows up in the list right click on it and choose run as
    3. Choose continue of the UAC Prompt
    4. Find the application from the process list
    5. Change it's priority

    Hope this helps
