I wants to implement SuperPi 1.5 by using the Process Explorer Utility and determine that it uses single threading, multithreading or multiprocessing?

This link indicates the SuperPi 1.5 uses single-threading:

Is that what you need to know?

Also (from Wikipedia):

"Super PI is single threaded, so its relevance as a measure of performance in the current era of multi-core processors is diminishing quickly. Therefore, Hyper PI has been developed to support multiple threads of Super PI to be run at the same time so one can test stability on multi-core machines. Other multithreaded programs include: wPrime, IntelBurnTest, Prime95, Montecarlo superPI, OCCT or y-cruncher. Last but not least, while SuperPi is unable to calculate more than 32 million digits, and Alexander J. Yee & Shigeru Kondo were able to set a record of 10 Trillion 50 Digits of Pi using y-cruncher under a 2 x Intel Xeon X5680 @ 3.33 GHz - (12 physical cores, 24 hyperthreaded) computer on October 16, 2011[4] Super PI is much slower than these other programs, and utilizes inferior algorithms to them."
