My pc's device manager is showing I have 2 cpu's in my computer now as shown at: Device Manager

I've tried removing them both at once before but they just keep coming back and I have only ONE cpu, a 3.4Ghz P4 Prescott socket 478. I think it may have something to due with my system randomly freezing, right after and before I reformatted it.


-----------------
PC specs:
3.4Ghz pentium P4 prescott
Asus P4P800-E Deluxe motherboard
Antec TRUE550 power supply
2x Corsair CMX512-3200C2 512MB DDR400 XMSMemory in dual channel
PNY geforce 6800ultra (AGP) video card
Sound Blaster Audigy 2 (pci)
Leadtek Winfast tv2000XP expert tv card (pci)
2x western digital 74gig drives in RAID 0 array (sata)
1x western digital 160gig 7200rpm drive (ide)
1x dvd rom
1x cd-rw
all hooked up to a belkin ups (800va i think)

I had the same thing happen with my pent4 3Ghz. I was told that it's not a problem, the processor has 2 cores and windows detects them as seperate processors.

You have HyperThreading enabled which causes the OS to see two logical cores.
