I just down loaded the software, and I want to help, but I am not sure what I need to do to get credit.

Nothing more, you've done all what's necessary :-)

Welcome to the boards and to BOINC/SETI!

Your computer has downloaded three tasks and is now probably processing two of them. As soon as they are finished, BOINC will upload them, if your computer is online.

Since each task has to be run by two different hosts, it will last until both have returned their work before credit can be granted.

If you are interested in reading more about BOINC, try the BOINC Wiki or the BOINC FAQ Service

Gruß,

you may want to watch your cpu temp. since you are running on a Laptop. Laptops tend to overheat quickly. You may even need a cooler for your laptop to sit on
