Default Running Mfactor

Is there a way of starting Mfactor (under Windows) in idle priority, similar to
the way that GMP-ECM can be run using the -nn option?

Default Mfactor

I found Mfactor to be very slow, and it didn't seem to speed up very much,
even when I tried running it on a fast, modern computer.

(Much later)
I found that you run it with "start /low" to run it in idle priority.
