Yeah.

I'll guide the user through.

FahMon: Download

-Download FahMon with the link I gave you.
-Unrar the file.
-Open the folder and open fahmon.exe

Since it is your first time opening FahMon, you'll get box that ask to Download Project. You can just click OK or hit the cancel button if there is one.

After that, you'll have another box with a blank white space. Right click there and "Add a new client"

Name: Anything you like.
Location: Location must be your folding directory, not the work folder.

Ex.
C:\\Program Files\\Folding@Home Windows SMP Client V1.01 - Correct
C:\\Program Files\\Folding@Home Windows SMP Client V1.01\\work - Wrong

After that, click OK. Now highlight your newly added status and go FahMon > Download new projects. It'll download the updates it needs and you're all set!

NOTE: You may need to let SMP run a few percentages before you get an accurate ETA.

And also, I get 8 minutes and 40 seconds on average @ 3.31GHz. Same WU number you have, as well.

if you hit ctl and c at the same time, it shuts it down properly, and saves your progress.

Ok. Also, I would like to know if i could make it go any faster? People have told me that I should run 2 instances of it to take advantage of my quad, however i'm only running the 1 console but it's running all 4 cores at 100%.. does this mean it's taking full advantage?

well with a quad and win smp, you can actually run 2 instances of fah. so your production goes up dramatically.

But if all cores are at 100% with just 1 instance then surley there aren't any CPU cycles free for the second instance
