Hyper threading

My new computer HP Pavilion t185 running XP home is supposed to have hyperthreading (is that the right term)

What exactly is this and what does it do for me amd my computer in everyday life please?

Many thanks for this

Is Hyperthreading automatically turned on or just a part of the new processor?

Go into Device Manager and see if you can see two processors. If you do, it's turned on.

I suspect HP would have turned it on. To turn it off, see if there's an option in BIOS to disable it.
