Increase scheduling priority

AKA: SeIncreaseBasePriorityPrivilege, Increase scheduling priority

Default assignment: Administrators

This right allows you to increase the priority of processes running on the system so that the CPU scheduler allows them to pre-empt other lower priority processes when the higher priority process has something to do. The most common way to increase a process’s priority is through Task Manager. To exercise this right you must still have Write Property permission in the ACL of the target process.
