I've just installed it, it's running with a graphic that shows a graph or something. How does it work and what are they searching for? I don't understand it at all...

but i'd like to contribute. Thanks.

nothing, just let it work and use your PC when you need/want to use it (it will work in background without the graphics)

a recent post here help to understand all of it.
