I am a newbiw to BOINC and am running two very std (2.4Ghz) home PCs with XP. One PC is running at 100% CPU but the second never gets about 50% for any BOINC project. I do not recall configuring this nor can I see where it could have been done. Any ideas ?

According to boincstats
you own one PIV 2.66 (no HT) and one PIV 3.2 (HT). The latter is capable of running two WUs is parallel. 50% CPU load indicates that only one WU is actually running. Please check your "general preferences" (Your Account). The value "On multiprocessors, use at most" should be at least 2.

Ok...yes it is now running two tasks per project...I assume that you can't control that i.e. i would rather run two projects at a time rather than two tasks from the same project especially when one of those is the BBC climate project.
