Interesting - my win10 machine shows the opposite problem (since a recent
win-update I assume). Despite setting povray priority to the lowest value
possible, I have to pause any render for using Firefox or even the windows

According to the task-manager Povray uses at least 99 % CPU power (i7-8700K - 6
cores 12 threads).
