It lets you download and install a program on your computer. The program will run only when you aren't using the computer, so it's transparent to you.

The program will help find cures for diseases and things like that.

So it costs you nothing but helps the whole world.

Basically there are 2 ways the program can work.

1) Only as a screensaver
- So after X minutes when you have not used the WCG screensaver program runs.

Basically it downloads a set piece of work to trial/test etc. It works on this while you are not using your computers memory (ie a screensaver)

once finished (duration depends on speed of pc and usage etc) it will upload the results to the server.

This will not affect your computers security, nothing other than the results will be transmitted. Nothing harmful will be downloaded. With RB and the thousands of other computers working on the program we can say that we are actively helping to solve some of the illnesses of the world by learning cures of the future.

I've been running the program on my pc no problems. Any more questions ask.
