multi thread disabling Proliant ML350 G5

I have HP Proliant ML350 G5 Server.
I see 4 CPU in Task Manager /Performance.
I think this is because of Multi threading .How i can disable Multi threading.
BIOS does not show any such feature to disable Multi threading.
I need to disable this for one of my software to work.This software supplier says License is disabled on System with 4 or more processors.

Re: multi thread disabling Proliant ML350 G5

no it is because your processor it is Quad-Core processor which means 4 Procs

if you have latest system rom you can reboot your server and disable 2 Cores there is a new feature in BIOS to do that

"Added support for Intel's Core Multi-Processing (CMP) Technology, that allows disabling of processor cores. This new ROM Based Setup Utility (RBSU) option allows for disabling one-half the cores on each physical processor such that a dual-core processor will have one core enabled and a quad-core processor will have two cores enabled. This feature is not supported by all models of the Intel Xeon processor. Consult Intel documentation for further information."
