WU's usually take anywhere from a day on up to complete depending on the system,If you want to check out how much each WU is worth try looking here.

Oh and that 500 frame you have is a small one,Wait till you get a 20000

And remember it's not a compititon to see who can get the most point's,It's about helping and trying to understand how thing's work hopefully leading to a cure for these disease's one day.

Right click the icon in your system tray, choose "Configure...".

Click the Advanced tab. On Core Priority, choose "Lowest Possible", then move the slider all the way to the right. This way, whatever percent of your CPU is not being used by you or your applications/processes will be used by Folding.

Yes, you will. At least for BF2, as it doesn't like to share.

Don't worry, though. If you set it like I said, Folding is set for LOWEST priority. That means EVERYTHING else takes precedence over it. It isn't slowing you down at all.

Just wait for the the 20K frames ones. Take almost two days on my PC even when I leave it on overnight.
