    Well its not on there any more thats for sure. I uninstalled both GPU and SMP until i can be bothered to get it going again. They really do need to get a better install program.

    OK so I reinstalled it and for some reason this time I actually saw the 6.23 drop-in binary on the download page over at folding.stanford.edu :banghead: .So I replaced the exe and placed all the files I saved from the install that worked and now it picked up were it left of last night.

    Yes using the 6.23 drop-in worked for me, when mine was just opening and closing immediately.

    I know it takes some patience to get these set up right but it is well worth the effort for the end result.

    I have been fighting with my GTX260 for over a week now..but there seems to be light at the end of the tunnel.
    After completely erasing any sign of ATI drivers from reg and using Driver Sweeper twice in safe mode and then installing 181.22 drivers I have been folding for ~36 hours with out trouble :rockout:

    Now all is left is to see how far I can push this card and still stay stable :).

    I was wondering, does it only work(Folding) if your computer is idle?

    I would say it works proportionally according to your work load. That is, it is a lower priority task than the rest of your tasks so it uses whatever spare cycles the CPU/GPU can throw at it. If you are doing nothing then it uses 100%. If you start working on your machine it scales back.

    Does the work load change after you done? Because when I first started off I had 1500 to work on.

    It would continuously adjust itself so when you are done working on your machine and no longer demanding CPU cycles for your own work the folding would use 100%. As soon as you demand more cycles it scales itself back. It would be invisible to you unless you open the task manager and watch the processes.

    Yeah, when I am doing something it scales down to 2% and then when I go to Idle it goes up to 50% and stays there. Is there a way were I can have it run at 100% when Idle?

    Use a SMP client. It uses both cores.

    I stopped folding because I don't think folding with an HD 3300 is worth it :p I got two 4850's coming, can someone get a guide for getting both folding at the same time?

    I need to get my friend's two 9800 GX2s set up and running: that'd take us to 104th probably. :laugh:
    I've got my Shaders on my 9600 GT clocked at 1950 MHz now, should I try pushing them further?
