Is this in regards to the ZombieLoad vulnerabilities?
Are you using Chrome OS? or Windows?
hello sir, thanks for answering me, yes is about the ZombieLoad vulnerabilities, im using windows 10, im just afraid that they will auto disable the ht with new microsoft updates; i hope im wrong and this is only manually applied through microcode updates downloaded from the intel website.

"Intel clarified that it's not recommending everyone to disable Hyper-Threading, but that some of its customers should consider the option depending on their security needs: "

Can't prevent some setting that hasn't happened yet.

So far, it is still manually done. Only time will tell.
