hi kaoscreator, from what I gather from the answer I posted from the SETI site, it is just purely an icon that repeatedly gets added to your taskbar
in error, it doesn't mean that you have mulitple applications of seti running, and as the program takes a back seat when you are doing other things
with your pc, it shouldn't effect performance in anyway.
I have my SETI@home set up to always run in the backgrond, and don't actually use it as a screen saver as the graffics can actually slow it down. I
have my screensaver in my desktop properties just set to run blank after 1 minute instead.
I'm certainly no expert on the technical side of all this, but I think that perhaps that may solve your problem?
Or else as spectre suggested , running the Command line version is another option although I've not checked it out myself.
