Have set everthing up and software installed followed link to join PC Review Crew. Task Execution Progress is moving from 0% now at 9% is that good? Think i set it up an Bonic? Task run time clocking moving upwards?

Complete Muppet when sorting out my own PC, but fine when doing it as a living, very strange

If it moved ... it's working ... now you leave it, and go do somit else.

ha, I should be so lucky ...

You'll do as we ALL have ... just have to have another look to see if it's "working" you'll learn just to leave it and get on with what you were doing.

OH, and you is on the team sheet already ... I won't give you the "wooden spoon" just yet though.

... and don't worry about the points, you'll get some score or other eventually

As Mucks says it looks like its working, but just so we can identify what your using for the future, can you tell me:

In the right side of your taskbar, is the tray icon a bluey green V shaped icon, or is it a dark circle with a yellow B?

You can also click on the tray icon - the WCG Agent says 'World Community Grid' and 'powered by United Devices' at the bottom, and Boinc says 'Boinc Manager' in the top left corner.....

Its important to know which, as there are a couple of tweaks to settings you may need to make to get the best performance

Bluey green V shaped icon up ok, No Bonic Manager in the top left corner, just says Primary Task Information . Sorry if being a bit of a Muppet, had a bad day studying, brain seems to have sized up, wd40 or beer needed!

No problem feckit - we've all been there!!

Right, you have installed the WCG UD Agent -there is one adjustment that you can make to increase your PC benchmarking.

Go to the WCG site and log in : http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/ms...iewProfiles.do

Click on Device Manager>Device Profiles>Default and change 'Hard drive space to allocate?' to the maximum (10GB)

Then press save.

The next time your PC uploads a result it will note the change and you will get a higher score for your PC as shown in the bottom right box (Device Information) on that 'Primary Task Information' screen you've noticed.
Higher benchmark score=higher points per job

Are you connected to the net 24/7? - if not, then when your current job finishes it won't upload the result and get a new job until you next go on.



Edit: I'm away now for the weekend, but Mucks and others here will help if needed...

Right done all that, thanks. PC not on 24/7, but on for 12 hours a day at the moment. Probably be on until 2300 (11:00pm) tonight though. Oh did as muckshifter suggested and went to chill out and leave machine alone
