Hello, I joined 2 days ago. I have a slow computer but I left it running all day. It has completed two or three task to 100%.

The problem is that I dont see my accounts getting points, what could be the problem?

It takes time to process the points.

If your computer is still running, you should start to see more work coming in now that the first couple of days are over (something of a break in period to determine which kind of work to send). The new work should in turn lead to a faster rate of earning points. 

We can check back in another day to see if it got going. There are occasional cases where things really do get stuck, but they are pretty rare.

It doesn't show any progress... my mail is confirmed, i joined several computing networks, i don't know what else i can do...

My pc is old,, i think that that must be the reason...

Maybe a long shot, but you could try changing Computing Preferences in the Options menu of the desktop software. In particular, "Use at most 95% of the CPUs" can be changed to 100%, and that might be what is needed for your processor.

In order to see that option, you might have to use the Advanced View (under the View menu), if you aren't already using that.
