Are you running the graphical client of the console version? Did you add the -advmethods and -forceasm flags?

It may keep resetting due to your overclock. Run your chip at 2.66 and see if the percentage changes.
Holy crap Shane!!!!!!! You just made me feel like a ******. :D I have no idea what those are or do I've been trying to get help in the folding forum oh the F@H site & they had me put verbosity 9. So what should I REALLY put?? :(
I also did try running it @ default CPU speed overnight & nothing happened still 0%.

What about reinstalling?

I'd suggest posting the log file, at least the portion which shows startup and the core initiation.
Sounds to me like it isn't picking up a WU at all. A quick way to check would be to pull up Task Manager and see if there is any CPU usage for "FAH_CoreNN.exe"
That will tell you if it's trying to do any work.
FAH_CORE65.exe is usin 99%of my cpu when it's running. Sorry about this wasn't sure what all to post:

Is there anything beyond the last line of log file you posted?
You are using the Tinker core on a P4, not a good combination unfortunately. You would certainly be better off adding the -advmethods switch and folding Gromac Work Units.
Not sure how long each frame will take on that work unit you are doing but I would guess around 15 mins or so, which would equate to 1% per hour.

Here is a thread (http://forum.oc-forums.com/vb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=200362&highlight=advmethods+graphical) that tells how to enable advmethods with the graphical client. You really should read Wedo's One Click Install thread a little further down for the best method of setting up folding.

that happened to me too, delete the folder, do a reinstall, everything is fine again.
Sweet I'm check it all out. You guys are pimps. Oh & yes after the last line it has the copyright credits(for Tinker I think) & the sigterm line, but that's it. I have tried reinstalling it & even redownloaded it to make sure nothing was corrupted. THX again guys.
