Hi there.

I've been struggling to set the affinity of a running process using VBScript.
I came to the conclusion that this is impossible.
But is there a way to tell Windows to turn off one cpu for a specific process?

I googled a LOT and came up with programs that cost about over a hundred dollars to buy...
Isn't there a way to set the affinity of a running process?

Oh, btw, I DO KNOW about Taskmgr. But most programs run full screen and run EXTREMELY crap when you get back to the program. Example is Lineage2. When it runs on DualCore systems, it can crash with a Negative Delta error. It's because of DualCore.

I also know about TaskAssistant, a program that has to keep running in order for it to work. It'll monitor when a specific process will launch and then sets it's affinity. But I don't want any unnecessary programs to fill up my ram.

Any help is welcome.
