yup, that's what Hyperthreading does
it tricks your computer into thinking there are 2 processors, so that the CPU will be sent 2 instructions to process at a time

There is no reason to disable the two monitors. It's not hurting performance at all. You can go to the Display properties (Right click on the desktop, go to properties)

If you see two monitors, right click on the one on the right (Your secondary one, even if it is behind the other one) and click detach... Or disconnect... Or whatever, something to that effect. But you dont need to uninstall it. You may screw things up doing that, do I would just leave it alone.

As for Hyper Threading, is Hyper Transport AMD's equivalent to Hyper Threading?

That secondary monitor thing is normal. You radeon has the capability to support dual monitors.

Also I think AMD's hypertransport has to do with the memory framework of a computer, compared to Hyperthreading that handles multiple CPU threads.

Yeah I looked it up, and Hyper Transport has to do with memory addressing and stuff. Hyper Threading has to do with the processor. Learned.
