    Do the points carry over from here, or do we start fresh?

    I was crunching away this morning (pc on as soon as I got up) but before i started I got a windows defender notification my windows7 version wasn't genuine and i needed to download validation software.
    Double checked, all legit so downloaded and things seemed fine.

    Started crunching away while i had my breakfast and after 5 mins heard the windows start tune. Damn thing had shut down on me in the middle of doing the work.
    Both gfx cards had defaulted to factory stock. Something I'll have to watch as it returned a couple of errors because of the shutdown.

    Don't know if caused by the crunching or by the Windows validation interfering.

    And is it crunching or folding? :D

    All that is part of windows update and not crunching. Most everyone here runs windows update manually, not automatically, so it doesn't update and restart the rig when your not around. You can also setup wcg to start on start up if you chose to.

    It was outwith the normal bounds of windows update. A warning via Windows Defender informing me my version of W7 was not legit. I also run update manually - i like to pick and choose my updates.

    All fine now.

    That was a bit weird, but glad it's sorted out now. Keep us posted if any further issues bud.
