|aznchowboy650||Can you so me step by step because when i put i into different directory and a different machine id it says folding program is already running this will shut down and yea i got a pentium m|

You can, but unless your processor has hyper threading, it isn't going to help performance at all. And yes, they do work on separate work units. Some people run several installations so that it can download several work units while connected to the net, then they can have it fold for a week with out needing to download another unit (unconnected to the net. You can just do several installations of JUST the console version or JUST the graphical version. Just install them all into different directories (FAH1, FAH2, FAH3), and give each installation a different machineID.
But again, if you don't have hyper threading on your CPU and you don't have to worry about the computer not having internet for awhile, I think it hurts performance.

I just finished Souping up my Dads computer. It had a 2500+ Barton, I just replaced it with a shiney new 3200+ Barton @2.2 (I wont overclock his) Its a regular case With poor air flow. I have 4 - AMDs, and 1 - P3 Folding now!!!!
GIT R DONE!!!

Did you see an immediate change after using the other flags? Will it also work on the Console version?

||2A|N||Ok i started folding again i think i fixed the issue with it causing some of my software to crash im taking advantage of my Hyper Threading im running console and and graphical all looks good so far|

Before stanford re-did the point values, the WUs that used the tinke core sucked. So you didn't want any tinkers. Using -advmethods would tell the server that you want a work unit that uses one of the newer more advanced cores (not a tinker). But since they redid the point value, for AMD rigs, I would say don't use -advmethods; for intels, it might help a little.
As for the -forceasm, it makes folding use ASM , which is some kind of instruction method that add efficiency. But I amd pretty sure ASM is enabled by default anyways. Definately also use -forceSSE, because on AMD rigs, SSE is not enabled by default. Or at least is wasn't before, they might have changed that... but use forceSSE and forceasm anyways, just to be sure. Not all CPUs support SSE, so be aware (AMD tbirds and older, and I thikn p3),
