Uninstall it and download it again. Select the console beta option, save as into a folder, name that whatever, i have labeled mine folding. Then double click on the icon and it should ask you for your name, type that in, then team, 37726 and then do you want to automatically have this running (or something) and hit yes and do defaults for everything else. That should work. If it doesn't then you may just be getting a bad batch of wu, check to see if your server for them is running.

Problems like this can also occure if the client cannot contact the servers for information. This can happen when a server is down. Check this page to tell if this is the case. <a href="http://fah-web.stanford.edu/serverstat.html" target="_blank">http://fah-web.stanford.edu/serverstat.html</a>

The servers are most likely down. Wait a little and see if that helps you. And when you reinstall it make sure you clean the registry with something like Ccleaner(go to issues and hit fix all) <a href="http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/" target="_blank">http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/</a><br />
<br />
To make sure it is completely gone from the registry, also delete your FAH folder to make sure that there is not part of a workunit in there.<br />
<br />
Try this and see if this helps!<br />
