I'm completely new to BTC mining. I'm quite fond of BFGMiner overall, however, on Windows, it has some strange behavior, which someone may be able to clear up.

1.) It doesn't detect my CPU (Intel i3-3240) at all. When I go into Manage Devices, and add all, I get a libusb_error_not_supported. This doesn't affect anything, as it still picks up my USB Block Erupter and my GeForce GTX 560 Ti. Which leads into...

2.) My video card is showing two threads, but one of those threads is paused. I'm still doing about 100-112 Mhashes/s with it (it's overclocked, and I know ATI cards are the preferred GPU for mining).

Just to clarify, BFGMiner on Linux does pick up my CPU on my netbook (Intel Atom N450), and uses those to mine, even though it's kind of pointless.

I do the BFGMiner as administrator also. Any guidance on these issues?
