You can run normal tasks like firefox, word etc but you can't use two FAH cores unless you have dual core ofcourse!

not entirey correct David, a HT cpu can run two instances of the console client at the same time. You need to name the FAH folders along the lines of FAH1 and FAH2 to get them to use the two threads.

Define "screwed up", I have pc's that have been running 24/7 for the last 6 months, the problem was probably caused by something else, hardware is the first port of call to investigate, FAH will quickly show up deficient hardware.

The only time FAH uses bandwidth is when it contacts the Stanford servers to d/load or upload WU's, some can be largish (30GB) it depends entirely on what the WU is.

I hope he means 30MB. The highest WU I've ever had was like 3MB.

The computer works fine 24/7 but when I ran F@H overnight it locked up to a point where nothing worked, so I restarted and it said there was a problem with the video card driver and it wouldn't do anything so I did a reformat. :/

I never had any problems before using F@H.

The video driver was at fault, absolutely nothing to do with FAH. What vid card/driver?
