Why would you need to 'assign' anything to a specific core in general use? Windows will use
both by default, spawning threads on both. Although Messenger is well known for its lack of
threading in some areas, audio/video is a nice exception (it's done by another team).
Anything NT-based is SMP aware. Plus, Live Messenger only works on XP and above anyway.
