Default How to know if HyperThreading is activated?

Hello everyone,

My doubt is this... how can I know if HyperThreading is activated? or, How can I know the number of physical processors?

I can't restart the machine, and look into the bios the number of physical processors; on the device manager and on task manager shows 4 cpu but I think that has only 2 physical processors. Are there any way to know this? I'm on Windows 2003 environment..

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi, try running a hardware identification utility like Sandra or Hwinfo, they are available at our downloads section:
