Do you have any links to support that? Seems strange to me since I at one time had an 8350 8core cpu running on win7 without any issues. No patches installed or anythingAnd, at the very least, what version of Windows are you running? (Windows 7 and lower will only use two cores natively)
The operating system will use as many cores as it needs. Your statement that some software will use the other cores is at odds with this statementunless I ran software that would invoke the other cores
Even windows xp will use more than two cores.Windows 7 and lower will only use two cores natively
