I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

No, in order to enable hyperthreading you need to have the hyperthreading option in the Bios enabled. Hyperthreading is controlled in the Bios and not by software that you install.
