After turning this off in BIOS, my P4 is finally behaving like a P4. The coma-cum-fit behaviour of IE really pissed me off. I almost wanted to go open source.

I am in the process of upgrading from P3 to P4, from ME to XP, etc. Anything I need to watch out or be aware of?

Yes, get all the drivers, softwares and files you need before installing XP. During and after complete installing XP, do not connect to the internet, until you installed firewall & antivirus softwares. Then, update your XP from Microsoft.

Also, download XP service pack 1 before you do the install and use it to update your XP installation before connecting it to the net. An unpatched XP, open to the internet (without firewall etc) will get a bot within minutes.

is it a DIY machine? sounds like you need an up-to-date mobo BIOS. HT works great in my old Dell desktop.

Does hyperthreading double CPU speed or does it split it creating two logical CPUs operating at half the speed. I suppose more threads can run at the same time but at what speed?
