Set your multithreading option (in Render tab) to "Automatic". Not sure did LW 9.6 suported more than 16 threads which is max you can select but Automatic should use all you have IF it supports that much threads. Otherwise you'll need to go to 0 for more threads (in 10 it works right now with 64 or even more)

Thank you very much Lewis for your fast answer, your advises don't work with lw9.6 _ but, i install new lw 10.1 and the renderer engine exploit the cpu power : they are all at 100% _ thanks again:)
