How to set affinity for Media Center?

How do I assign Windows Media Center to one core? I don't know all the process names. If someone knows what they are I think I could do it with task manager.

hi Jake, the process is called ehshell.exe, that's the one that uses the most CPU when playing files in media center, hope this helps

I tried that but internet explorer (9) still freezes like antarctica when I try to run them both. I guess my system is just too slow. Thanks for the help though.
