ahh thats a shame, i know its nothing important at least i can fold thats the main thing, i just liked the display on when my computer was doing bugger all except folding of course,
whats the difference between the console and the system tray client (if that right) i am still quite new to folding so would like to know a bit morethere's someone in my head but its not me

IDK what the difference/s between the software code is, but the basic differences are that the console version can be set to run as a service (in the background, so you don't get the GUI or any buttons/icons in the TaskBar/SysTray) and AFAIK, you also get a better PPD yield from the console..... The last point might be due to there being no GUI to generate, meaning that there are no cycles being 'wasted' doing the animation....
All of my instances are the stealth/console version.....
BTW, you don't have to have the console version running as a service, but it is easier... You can just open the EXE by itself and have the CLI running in your TaskBar....

With the 'console' (or stealth) version, and even if it is running as a service, you can still stop it...
If you're running the console client manually, then you can just close the CLI window. If running as a service, then you can stop the service by going into services.msc and stopping it....
