Make 4 copies of the Prime95 folder and run each one (or use one folder and use the -A0 through -A3 command line switches for each copy). The computer will know automatically that they should use all your cores (you can check that there's 100% CPU usage, 25 per instance, in the task manager), or you can set the Affinity in Options - Affinity to 0 through 3 to make sure.
