You could have, instead of making a new directory, opened up a command prompt, cd into your prime95 directory, and started a second instance with the -A1 switch.

cd \Program Files\Prime95 <return>
Prime95 -A1 <return>

Doing so will start a new instance of Prime95, which you then put in all your information just like a new install. If you turn on the start at bootup option in both instances of Prime95, both will automatically start whenever you restart your computer.

I don't know if setting the affinity is necessary with hyperthreaded machines, but it might also be worth a try.

This is what I have done on my dual processor box, and on my hyperthreaded boxes.
