Lost two rigs to a stupid paranoid parent...

I've been running folding on the office machine and my sisters computer and now my mom thinks I'm running some kind of virus and claims it's slowing down her machine (which was actually having a motherboard crap out, Dells suck).

So I've lost another 1.416Ghz of folding power because she's naive of computing. Folding also keeps displaying the HTML of some pages she visits for some unknown reason. That bothered her more than anything else...

Is there some way to run Folding completely hidden in Windows 98SE?

There is a program called HIDEIT. www.expocenter.com/hideit/Be careful though. As a parent I would rather be convinced than decieved.:)

Okay, I'm in a better mood now that I have MY second rig up and folding (Duron 950).
I'll simply ask my sister if I can run [email protected] on her machine either in her name or mine. And I'm posting the classifieds to find a classic Celeron to finish off my third machine (which will fold also).

I think I have one celeron 366 OC to 523 at 2V laying around. PM me if you are interested.

Guys, get those CPUs some homes. They can't fold in a box.

run it as a service : go to regedit, in blahblah local machine, software, microsoft, windows, current version, runservices, and add an entry to Folding, with the -service switch at the end. It'll work (or so it did with older versions)
