    Hi after many frustrating hours of searching online for a solution to my problem i found and article on Mod The Sims2 about dual core processors possibly causing conflict in a the Sims 2. It gave advice on how to fix it by opening task manager and selecting the sims process and going to the affinity option and unticking the CPU 1 box..I presumed that was only for dual core processors. I have a Prescott 3.0GHz processor with hyperthreading. So out of curiousity i decided to see if had that option and I did. I am now confused as to why I would have the option of using CPU 0 and CPU 1 at the same time when I don't own a dual core system. This might seem outright obvious to people but it isn't obvious to me. Does my system act like a dual core one? Oh and by the way, unticking the box CPU 1 seems to have stabilised my game somewhat.:confused: can someone please explain?
