Issues after using XP Smoker registry utility

Specs: Windows XP
I was messing around with a tweaking application (XP Smoker) and, somehow, it applied some sort of setting that puts all processes to every process Affinity level (using all CPU #'s instead of the one) even with newly-launched programs. Is there a way for me to turn this off back to default?

I have tried System Restore and Last Known Good Configuration, and neither fixed it.

Thanks in advance.

By default all processes will have no affinity set and will be able to use all CPU cores. With rare exceptions this is the optimum setting. If it is set otherwise you will need to describe the problem. Windows does not have a persistent setting for affinity that will survive a reboot.

I would suggest you avoid making changes with affinity settings unless you understand the implications. This is not simple.
