OP thanked. Is it possible that I would notice a difference while running boinc on 8 threads in a 2600k? My mouse was stuttering and with this change, the stuttering has decreased substantially. Note: I am running process lasso in the background, both before and after. I changed every registry entry for "unparked" that had a value max parameter. I noticed that in some cases this was already set to zero while the min was set to 05hex. I reset the minimum to zero too. After a reboot, it doesn't seem to have caused any problems - yet.
