You can help by donating the time your computer is turned on, but is idle, to projects that benefit humanity! They provide the secure software that does it all for free, and you become part of a community that is helping to change the world. Once you install the software, you will be participating in World Community Grid. No other action must be taken; it's that simple! To learn more and join, go to the World Community Grid site.
I have been running the World Community Grid on my PCs since November 2004 and have not had any problems affecting the performance or security of my system.
We can't always afford to give money to medical research, but we can afford to give our PC's spare time.
