affinity plugin check

09 Mar 2019 00:14

I was re-reading an old article from the oldnewthing blog, where a customer was complaining that windows was only using 1 cpu for all apps. After some clever thinking time, they determined that the customer had assigned a specific processor to the explorer process.

Since affinity's inherit from parent to child, and since explorer starts all your apps, ... we'll everyone will have caught on by now.

The feature request is:
- in the affinity plugin, check if the target is explorer, if it is, msgbox("you really don't want to do this") and deny the request. I'm convinced someone somewhere will feel like he has a brand new computer.
