Default f@h troubles

I haven't ran F@H on my main pc in probably 4-5 months.... I opened it back up the other day and left to eat lunch.. I came back and it was still at 0/0, it also caused my computer to go into "not responding" mode... like the client didn't throttle back when I was using other applications. I tried uninstalling and re-installing the latest version.. but no such luck. it is still doing the same thing.

Have you allowed F@H access thru your firewall? That way it can access the network and get the strands to fold?

It's a program, you run on your computer, that has the CPU crunch numbers, and sends the completed data back to scientists for research. It helps in understanding various diseases such as AIDs, that may lead into finding a cure for them.

So it uses the CPU for research, I may run it when idle.
