I've been using the www.grid.org application for quite a while now (over 4 months, I believe) and I would like to recommend it to you all.
Even though it might look like the typical install and background - run application, it is quite different. First of all, the purpose of the application is a social one: you help researchers to discover cure for 2 maladies: cancer and small-pox.
Then, the application is very PC-friendly, as it only consumes resources you are not using in the present time. It consumes only processor and RAM, keeping the Internet connection free. Also, if you want you can customize it to run only as a screen-saver, keeping all your computer resources free at all time.
Third, the team-based concept is very interesting and it gives a sense of competition tat can only be benefic in donating more resources for this purpose.
I recommand you to read more about this at:

If you want to download and install the software, this is the link: http://www.grid.org/download/gold/download.htm
Afterwards, please join the PULP FICTION team.
All the best,
