There are just five simple steps to get started:
1. Update your video drivers
2. Register at http://www.compute4cash.com
3. Download the Compute4Cash client
4. Enter your account name in the configuration file
5. Run the program in the background and watch the money accrue
Step 1: Update Video Drivers
For ATI/AMD video cards: http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx
For nVidia video cards: http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us
In order to use the Compute4Cash client you also need the latest VC++ package from Microsoft: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=a7b7a05e-6de6-4d3a-a423-37bf0912db84
After installing these packages you will need to restart your computer to finalize the installation.
Step 2: Download the Client
Step 3: Configure the Client
Open the Compute4Cash.ini file with notepad and on the line that says "ACCOUNT=" remove the default value and replace it with the account name you created on the Compute4Cash website. Then save and close this file and move on to the next step.
Step 4: Run the Program
Now you can surf the web, walk the dog, go to work, sleep, and so on and as long as you keep this program running in the background you will be making money! The faster your video card the more money you will make. The Compute4Cash system pays each user based on how much work they complete (measured in Work Units), so the more WU you complete the more you get paid.
You can monitor your account balance by logging in at http://www.compute4cash.com, and once you've built up enough WU you can request a cashout and Compute4Cash will send your funds to the Paypal or Liberty Reserve account you specify.
That's all there is to it! You can throttle back the program using the configuration file if it is interfering too much with your normal activities, but the program seems to do a pretty good job of that itself. Enjoy!
