Thread: Does Such A Program Exist?!

  1. #1
    Does a program exist which, when opened can open up a list of other programs (all at once) and when one of those programs in the list is shut down then all of the programs will close (at once).
    This program must also be very small and low on RAM + run in the background.
    This program would be useful so that when I open Firefox, Messenger wouldl open up immediately as well as other programs which I use when on the internet.
    Messenger would then clos when Firefox closed.

    Thanks…

    I'm not sure if this is what your looking for, but......

    for win xp:
    Alt-ctrl-del (task manager) and select the "processes" tab, find the .exe your wanting, right click and choose "set priorities"...... However, I used it once for an game I was playing online, and set the priority to high...didn't see much of a change.

    to make it open all the apps woudl be pretty simple, but closing...I don't know.
    and to open them you'd just have to run the batch file, not like when you run one app all the others start.

    this would seem like kind of a PITA though...
    I mean, so if Firefox or whatever crashes, then your Messenger closes too?
    no bueno.

    I saw a batch file which did this before but can&#39;t remember how to get it to work...

    Not lazy I just tire of having to do repetitive tasks.
