Anything will help.

 

Folding is basically cancer research. The program downloads packets of information and then processes the information and sends it back to Stanford. It uses up alot of CPU power, but its at the bottem of the priority list so it shouldnt hurt anything else your doing on the computer. I have it installed on all of my computers, but I turn it off when doing video rendering, gaming, photoshop, ect. (pretty much anythign that uses alot of system resources).

 

It helps search for a cure to cancer and it doesnt hurt you any, so why not do it and help out a little bit.
