I need to limit the CPU cores of the computer through a script / CMD command / .Net languages.
The necessity of this is, as a computer maintainer, I tend to come across some laptops that have a problem with their cores, and disabling 1 core tend to solve this problem, with time I noticed this happens in some manners across certain models, I can fix this when the laptop is present, but after a reboot it returns.
I need to be able to give my clients or send them remotely a program that will fix the problem.
unfortunately I haven't found any lead to how to do this, I have tried searching online and searching the MSN support website but I have not found any documentation to this or where it would be stored.
I also tried taking registry snapshots and comparing them but it doesn't seem to be stored there.
The place to change this setting is under the msconfig -> boot -> advanced settings. (see image)
Can someone please tell me how to do this or where it gets stored or any lead to it at all? I can program but I don't know how to reach it.
Any lead to this would be most appreciated.
