Nothing like lots of detail to enable us to give you some targeted help now is there?

What processor are you running? What other applications are your running at the same time? SETI will use all your spare processor speed to drive the calculations so there is not much else (other than overclocking your processor) to be done. DO you have enough memory/hard drive space so that the program can comfortably work without constraints.

Is there a specific problem with your PC at the moment to suggest SETi is running too slow?

> overclick ur PC.

Overclocking can corrupt your results, so that they don't recive credit.
There's a long discussion over at 'number crunching'.
