You mean wrong section...Right this is the thing at the top which says "join the CF folding team" Hmm. Unistall and reinstall is the best option. Run your computer in safe mode to uninstall and then make sure you install the correct version for you

It doesn't run very well on mine either, and check my specs...

What it does is makes my computer run really slow, and sometimes makes it freeze..even on the low prority processor mode... very buggy...

No b/c earlier I turned my laptop on for the first time in about 2 hrs (so it had time to completely cool off) and within 3 minutes of it being turned on it shut off!?!?!
I uninstalled and reinstalled the older version but it still turned off!?!?
