Hello, I just ordered a new computer and only now while waiting for the parts to arrive did I realize that my current machine (an abit using an Intel Celeron C 2.80Ghz processor) has hyperthreading ability, but it is not enabled in windows. I read online that to enable it in windows requires a fresh install. My question is if I do a fresh install, enabling the hyperthreading, and then restored my old registry from a backup and program files, would the hyperthreading still be enabled, or would the change mess it up. Also is this whole process even plausable? I really just don't want to reinstall the few hundred programs on this machine. Will hyperthreading be worth it? --- btw I'm running XP Pro.
