Unless you have a lot of money invested in 'ASIC miners' which connect to your computer it is pretty much pointless to mine bitcoin.
Back when the computations were simple, your computer didn't have to work as hard to crack the encryption blocks so people made out like bandits.
Now that bitcoins are running out, it's becoming harder and harder to acquire them.
I had the wallets downloaded and programs downloaded too, but uninstalled it all once I figured out how it all actually works --- and this late in the
game it's pretty pointless. Sorry & hope that helps.
