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.

    I strongly question your basic premise, but look here for where MSCONFIG stores its settings in the registery: superuser.com/questions/878872/… Jul 21 '18 at 23:34
  • @FrankThomas question it how? i am happy to answer anything unclear. and I checked there, it does not get stored in that registry. also to make sure, as I have said in the post, I tried comparing before and after snapshots multiple times and the settings were not stored in the registry.
