I've discovered that if you log off and shut down for any length of time, when you restart you will be assigned a new WU, and you won't score any points for any units you haven't completed, no matter how much of it was completed before you shut down.

This seems to be plaguing Win Xp, but here in WinME - i can log off, crash, reboot, randomly power off etc - and folding is fine - i never lose the WU.

I'm seriously thinking about reworking my setup. Why do Microsoft do this to people who pay them good money. Makes no sense.

Are u running XP home? or Pro.

Using client version 3.24, the only option I've got is to 'Pause Work', which I do. It doesn't matter to me that much now cos I'm folding 24/7 from today, just thought I'd bring it up for the unaware.
