How Programs Operate

Authentication

Each program that is installed on your box will have to authenticate before it can be run. Normally this is done behind the scenes and is overlooked; however, if ever a file was damaged or missing it will notify the user and work in a crippled, slower state. If the programs main executable has been removed or damaged, then you will not be able to launch that program. Programs that come with the operating system, like jukebox, or the e-mail client have shortcuts on the desktop. If their main executables are removed from the systems directory or damaged they will cease to display on your desktop.

Input & Output

Possibly with results, or an error or alert message, notifying you there was a problem setting up the procedure.

Task Manager

A task manager is a list of system processes which are actively running on your operating system. Each process also displays its priority status and CPU usage. By right clicking on a process, you will be able to modify its priority.

Dynamic Load Balancing

Dynamic Load Balancing is the concept of running simultaneous tasks or connections while each require a percentage of the whole. The more of these processes that are running, the less "attention" each will receive at any given instance and thus they will take longer to complete. This applies to running applications and connection pipelines (bandwidth).

Task Priorities

Task Priorities directly correlate with Dynamic Load Balancing. Tasks may be assigned a greater or lesser priority rating than others so that they gain more or less "attention" by the system. This alters the time it takes to complete the task as well as all of the others. The priority scale is as follows, 1 (Low Priority) through 5 (High Priority)
