My problem is not HT ON. The proof is that I have turned it OFF,

So, why is the CPU command showing 8 processors?

Turn off Hyperthreading.

I insist this computer works exactly the same with HT on / off. The only difference is that 4 or 8 cpus appear. So much so that the other day when I modified it to 4, I left it at four because I didn't notice anything, not even in performance. Subsequently, I changed it again to 8, to see if it had influence with another subject, but no.

Hi roberto,

If you don't see any difference with hyperthreading on or off, try an experiment and turn it off for at least a month, then report back.

I know it is nice to be able to say that you have 8 processors running - the youngsters I build computers for all want bragging rights with as many processors as possible which partly works on windows but not on OS/2 that runs much better on real cores, not partial cores that need a real core to work - and there is the problem, if the real core is serving a partial core and misses the timing for something it should be doing we get traps and exceptions.

Your decision, live with traps and exceptions and fake processors or use real processors only.
