Setting affinity on dual core processor...

    Is there a way to permanently set affinity for a program on a dual core
    processor? I have AMD 64 x2 4200+ running Win XP Pro x64. I know you can go
    into task manager, right click process and select 'set affinity', but it only
    works for that time. When you reboot, it's back to dual. I think there is a
    Win 2000 registry program (InfFiltr?) that does this, but I'm pretty sure it
    won't work on x64. Is there any program, or registry edit that can do this?

    Thanks in advance,

    I can't answer that but wonder what kind of results you've had by selecting
    affinity and assigning processors to certain processes. I was going to try
    that out tonight to see what kind of result I can get. Is it better than
    simply letting the OS do the work?

    I got an answer on They directed me to this program:


    in case anyone else is interested.

    I haven't run much to check the results yet, but I have had success running
    a memory intensive program (Folding @ Home) on one processor, and a memory
    intensive game (FarCry x64) on the other. Graphics, sound and framerates
    were better...

    Good luck,
