#1619 Decrease process priority

Can you please set process priority to low upon launch? Now, when I try to decompile or search something in SWF file with plenty of code (over 5000 classes), my system starts to freeze because all available CPU cores are at 100% load. I have to use Task Manager and change priority of child javaw.exe process every time.

Did you try disabling "Parallel SpeedUp" in settings? Or you can lower number of threads in Advanced settings / Decompilation.
Of course, but I thougth it was added there for... well... speeding things up? :) Lowering max thread count can be an option, true, but lowering priority can work better, because it can still utilize all available cpu resources without eathing them off other apps.
Another easy solution would be adding some "auto" value (0 or -1), which transforms into Math.max(1, Runtime.getRuntime().availableProcessors() - 1), it will spare one logical core for system needs.
