Description:
  Changing process' priority so it runs faster...Usually not recommended but know it's possible.
  
// This will haste your process, use when you need SPEEEED for algorithms etc..!

// Get HWND process ID
DWORD pID = 0;
GetWindowThreadProcessId(hWnd, &pID);

HANDLE hProcess = OpenProcess(PROCESS_ALL_ACCESS, false, pID);
SetPriorityClass(hProcess, REALTIME_PRIORITY_CLASS); // This is the highest possible priority!
CloseHandle(hProcess);

It's great! I also want to know how I can change a running process's priority using DOS command?
