I doubt if setting the affinity is such a good way to go (just googled 
the topic rapidly). Depending on the number of cores you have available 
on your computer, just set +wt in POV-Ray. In my case, I have 8 cores 
and I always render with +wt6. For most of my other activities while a 
render is in progress, the 2 remaining cores are more than enough.
