Hey guys, how can I check (without going to Bios) if hyper-threading is enabled on my Core i7-2600? Thanks.

My windows 7 install for an i3 showed the ht as extra cores (4 instead of 2 in the device manager).

Windows Task Manager is another alternative. I have a quad-core processor and I'm seeing things as if I had 8 cores. The "system idle time" counts 8 times as fast instead of 4 (for CPU time).

Around the block way;
Control Panel -> Adimnistrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Device Manager -> +Processors.

Why are the above two answers unacceptable?

because they didn't give step to step instructions like you did, thanks
