Is my Intel Core 2 Duo E7400 doing its job?

Well, you see, as far as I see in details here http://ark.intel.com/products/36500 , I see that it uses 2 cores. But wherever I check my system settings and etc in wide range of system and CPU softwares it says I have 1 core. Only place where it shows two of them is in Device Manager under the Processors.

One guy suggested that it is working in background whenever I need it, but if it were true then I would be able to play games that require 2 cores, but I can't - those games are suggesting that I have only one core.

So if somebody can help me, please do so.

 

Thank you.
