Killer Prioritization Engine Blocking Browser when Steam is Downloading

So my laptop goes into stupid mode when Steam is downloading files.  The problem is the Killer Prioritization Engine thinks a bulk download by Steam is more important than anything else.  I did manually set the priority of Steam to lowest, but COME ON INTEL, this should not be necessary.    If you're going to go around and call your stuff "Killer" you best be spot on with your claim.

Hello, @JustMeHere  

 

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.  

 

We know it must have been frustrating for you. 

 

The priorities can be set as you were able to check, although we understand your point of view that this shouldn't be necessary and the feedback will be shared with the proper team. 

 

Just to make sure, Do you need any assistance regarding your Killer adapter, or just want to share this valuable feedback? 

 

Best regards,

Thanks.  Most people will not figure that out.  It took me awhile to even remember that Killer Intelligence Center may even do that.  GOG's downloader will cause the same issue.  I don't have EA's downloader, but I'm sure it will do it.  Probably should put Tarkov on that list too.
