Yes, your CPU can be used. Go to https://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/home.php to set your preferences.

I believe they are all single-threaded now. There is no option for multi-threaded.

You can just run multiple single-threaded WUs concurrently to use more threads, which BOINC should be doing automatically unless you've changed your CPU utilisation parameters.
