    Hey, I am thinking about starting to fold. I looked over the FAQ, but I was wondering, what if for some reason I want to stop folding? Do I just simply drag the Folding@home to the trash?

    Re: Thinking About Folding

    Depending on which method you installed with.
    Mostly yes.
    But why would you want to stop? It uses idle comp time... :rolleyes:
    Not like it slows the computer down at all or even a little.

    yeah there's no reason not to. it runs in the background if you install it right, and you'll never have to think about it running again-- unless you want to install SETI instead. and this is more important anyway :)
