Default ALERT: Dual Core/Vista Users!

I'm not sure how new this is, but if you're a vista user, and you have a dual core processor, read on.

I was googling random stuff, and I found this article. You might want to check and see if Vista is using both cores, and fix it if it is not.

Sorry if this is old!

I am running Vista and a Core 2 Duo. I didn't have any problems. Maybe it was a motherboard BIOS problem more that Vista. Either way, it's probably corrected by now with a Vista update or motherboard's bios's updated. Good info though.
