Hey guys and gals,


I'm the system administrator for a town hall and they use what they call RECAP Systems,which is operating under DOS. We have a problem, this program is run off a DOS server which the employees are using through Microsoft Windows 98, XP or ME via command prompt window. I had complaints of slow systems so I investigate, I found that when that program is running either window, full screen or simply residing on the task bar the cpu is being use at 80 to 100% which steals resources from other applications running at the same time.

My question is how can I setup this DOS program to run lets say at 25% of CPU.

And by the way the worst system is the Windows XP PRO with a 1.5 AMD XP proc. its running slow when that DOS program is running you wouldn't believe it! A system with Windows 98 533mhz runs faster!

Any advice would be very appreciated!

Thank You
