Hello,

I have a new iMac, 3.06 GHz Intel Core 2 duo. It is using only 1 of the 2 cores to process any BOINC program.

My other Core 2 duo Mac uses both cores. I have set all of the preferences to allow both processors to run, and it doesn't.

Any suggestions?

Are you sure there are no local preferences overriding those on your Account page? And that the host is not in a different “venue”?
