    switching hyperthreading on & off from the OS (not from the bios!)



      is it possible to switch HT off and on again from Windows operating systems?

      My processor supports HT, and i can disable and enable HT from the BIOS.  I know.


      The question stems from the need to optimize certain and different CPU-intensive programs at certain times, without restarting the computer.


      I know that this is possible from linux. but i didn't find a way to do it from windows XP/7.


      alternatively, is there a way to temporarily disable and then enable single processorts? (again, from Windows, without going thru the bios)


      thank you
