As the posts above suggest it may or may not help your temperature issues.

In any case, here's the link: Prio - Priority Saver

Hope this helps,
thanks for the suggestion. the software work as advertised it saved priority setting but not affinity. good alternative to setup any software that run background update such as adobe or win update.
That's good news. For more reference, these might be helpful as well for priority settings instead of just affinity settings. The context menu options can help make it easier to set them instead of going through Task Manager.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

I found this program while doing some research on a problem in my office. It allows you to change the affinity of any program. It's called CPU-Control. here's the link: - CPU-Control (Win 98/2000/XP/Vista/7) hope it helps. If it doesn't, I have an older program I found a few years ago that I know will lock in any program to the affinity you need. It's called set affinity. I can't seem to find it at this point. Last I saw it was about 4 years ago.
