What project is it running? Try launching it with -smp 8 just in case it detected the number of cores wrong.

Since you have an i7 why arent you just folding bigadv in windows, you only need the vmware trick when you have an i5 or x6.

Definitely not with a 2600k. It'll do more harm than good.

Nope. You can still get a considerable PPD gain from VMware Linux folding inside Windows on an i7. My Xeon x3440 (i7-860s) gets a 8-10k PPD increase.
