This is my observation, in Windows many times when we start any application, it won't start but process name gets added in task manager. When I click on it or try to end process, it immediately gets started. Does this happen, or it is just coincidence for me.

Does trying to end process increases its priority?

Thanks in advance.

Trying to kill a process has nothing to do with its priority. P.S. You can set priority to a process via right click one the process > set priority.

I know that but what about my incidence with Task Manager. – Pranit Kothari Jul 2 '13 at 9:42
Total coincidence. – matan129 Jul 2 '13 at 9:45
@manthan129: I don't think so. I have found other people also have same experience. – Pranit Kothari Jul 2 '13 at 10:04
Think about it. Why should it influence the priority? It does not make sense. It can be something else though. – matan129 Jul 2 '13 at 10:06
When I try to do something with process with Task Manager, may be it will become high priority process (somehow). And, just saying, in operating system, things are not always 'how' we think. May be I am wrong, but I am accepting answer on facts and not on guessing. – Pranit Kothari Jul 2 '13 at 10:08
