Possible that the newest beta of WInRAR understands HT better.

If they want to reverse the change, it's easier and safer, in my opinion, to go to the control panel than to dig through the registry again.
That said, if this is confusing anyone, they should probably leave well enough alone, especially considering how hit or miss the tweak seems to be.

Yeah, it certainly seems to be working on your setup.
I get similar results in resource monitor with the Core parking min cores adjustment but I'm not seeing any performance difference in anything.
Edit: My Server 2008 R2 systems seem to have actual core parking working (even physical cores are parked), still no performance difference though, and the OS defaults to 100%, not 10%.
Need to double check somethings on my other systems...Edited by Blameless - 12/8/11 at 3:40am
