How do I check to see if I'm running Astropulse? And if not how do I get it (install it) if I am already running seti@home? I don't think Astropulse installed correctly on my machine.

You don't have to install anything, other than BOINC and add Seti@Home as the project.
However, you can set which projects to run in your account->Project preferences.

In this case, edit the preferences with the button at the bottom of the page, then check:
Run only the selected applications
v SETI@home Enhanced
v SETI@home v7
v AstroPulse v6

(So do not check Astropulse v505, this one is deprecated.)

Next click the Update preferences button at the bottom of the page.
At the next contact that BOINC has with the project, it will download these new preferences and use them.

Thanks for the information. I did what you suggested. But if I go to the "All Tasks For Kurtis" page it shows I do not have Astropulse. Do I still have it even if it shows there I do not? Thanks.

No, when your tasks page shows no Astropulse, then you don't have any Astropulse tasks at this time. Which doesn't mean that you can't get any.
