First of all, welcome to our small but active team. I am relatively new to this myself. One thing I've learned is the built in viewer does not work and will mess up your install, You need Download | FahMon or FahSpy - powerful monitoring tool for Folding@Home distributed computingto monitor your PPD.

If your interested, the F@H forums Folding Forum • Index page have lots of useful info, also Vijay Pandas blog page Folding@home for updates on the project. Be careful Folding can become addictive, I check my points several times a day and am always looking for ways to get more....

Welcome to the team Dashock! With and 8800GT you should be getting close to 5000. That's about what I get with my G92 GTS. You have the correct drivers installed right? Otherwise the client will run but it won't actually do anything.

I'm guilty of this too. I've got the stats page bookmarked and I'm constantly checking it...
