One core instead of Two?!

Hello Everybody:

Recently I went through the "System Configuration" and I noticed that under the "Boot" tab -> "Advanced Options", the number of processors written there is 1 processor (and unmarked).

It means that one core of my dual core processor is turned off?

Another thing that I know that can be affected by this option, if not set right, is the CPU-Z software that checks that CPU and can cause faulty data report.

Should I change it? Does it make in difference?

Thank you.

    Nope, as long as the box is unchecked, it shouldn't matter. If 2 cores show up in CPU-Z, and 2 show up in task manager, you're fine.
