The Pentium 4 is a single core CPU, but you may have a CPU that supports HyperThreading. That would make it appear as a dual (one real, one virtual) to the OS, even though it's single core.

One of my computers has this exact same processor, and if it is as old as mine, it doesn't support Hyper-threading.
