Prio is a simple program which adds a “Save Priority” option to Windows Task Manager effectively making any priority change by you permanent:

Of course this “Save Priority” feature is optional so you do not have to enable it (if you just want to change the processing priority for a limited amount of time).
In addition to the save priority feature, Prio has some other interesting tools just as “Silent Elevation” and adding useful tooltips to processes/service/connections in Windows Task Manager.
Now in terms of managing CPU usage Prio, only offering the ability to manually change CPU priority, is definitely inferior when compared to Process Tamer; however Prio is better for those people that prefer not to download programs like Process Tamer and rather prefer to use Windows Task Manager for their CPU usage management needs.
