- Access Task Manager.
- Choose the Processes tab.
- Right-click the process associated with the problem application.
- Select the Set Affinity command. (If you don't have a dual-core system, you won't see the Set Affinity command.)
- From the Processor Affinity dialog box, clear one of the CPU check boxes.
You could perform this manual operation every time you run the application, but the THG Task Assignment Manager (available for download from Tom's Hardware) allows you to create profiles that automatically assign applications to a specific CPU every time you run them.
