Answers :

The processor you are talking about is a single core processor capable of Hyper Threading. (HT).
When you allow hyperthreading in the BIOS, Windows will show 2 ghost processors in the device manager.

If you are authorized to acces the BIOS setup,,enter the setup and look for HT or hyperthreading. If you disable hyperthtreading in BIOS, you will only see one processor in device manager.
Besides, if it is a dual core the BIOS must know.

Look on the case of the computwr where the Windows logo apperas, you may find mentioned :With HT technology. It used to be a boasting/selling mantra.

Hope it helps.
