I am having trouble with Mercury mail. I have a dual processor amd machine running windows 2000 advanced server. My mercury keeps stopping for no reason. They told me that if I bind the program to a certain processor, it should fix the problem. How do you bind the program to a certain processor?

this is called setting processor affinity...

If you have a multi-processor system, it is possible to select which CPU(s) an application uses.

Open Task Manager and select your application on the Processes tab. Right click the program name and choose Set Affinity. Uncheck the processors which should not run this application.

If you try to select a service, Set Affinity will be ignored.

and:

How can I permanently set the processor affinity for an application?
