VMware Virtual Machine for Windows 64-bit

Just tried to make a virtual machine using VMware workstation for a Windows 64-bit machine and I got this message:

VMware needs to have an enabled VT (Virtualization Technology) CPU to run a Windows 2008 64bit guest. I just ran the Intel Utility to check if this machine was enabled, and it isn’t. I get the VMware error while trying to install and can’t get further ahead. Checked out the VM documentation and there isn’t any setting to emulate VT. Just tried VirtualBox, and it’s the same deal. To make sure your PC is capable, you can try VMware’s Process Tool.
