Basically, you're asking if the scheduler is stupid or sensible. The scheduler is sensible. It constantly moves tasks from core to core as needed to keep as many cores busy as it can and honor the priority settings.
You can boot into safe Mode. Once there use regedit to delete the offending task. It should be in HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Schedule\TaskCache\Tree\***yourtaskname***
