windows 7 setup for Audacity optimization

Is their any way that I can tweak Windows 7 so that Audacity has priority over any other programs running in the background or whatever. Also, are there any programs that could hamper Audacity that can be removed to help it function. Are there any drivers I would need to help out. In other words, I want to find a way to tweak Windows 7 so that the entire computer is built to run Audacity. Thank You
