Are you using the graphical client? If so, you'll need to wait until it gets to around 5% from first start up to tell you the right calculation of date.

Wait until it gets to over 5%, then it will give a much more accurate end date.

Yeah takes some time for it to get an accurate measure. When i first tried it on my PC it said like a year, and i was like F THAT!

Hah i tried it on my laptop the other day, some $400 laptop we got for my mother like 2 years back.
I left it going for an hour and it didn't even get 1% done, all it managed to do was make my couch nice and warm, which i then proceeded to sit on.

My P3 rig takes forever to fold. I know "every little bit helps", but damn, 24 hours for 3% does nothing but add to my elecricity bill.

Depending on your lappy, it'll show you a more accurate time after about 3-8%.

Are you using the console version? SMP? or Graphical Client?
