it seems to be connecting to the internet the time elapsed and time remaining is running right now. I think the program may be to much for my little Toshiba.

The utilization of resources is about right for this project. It will definitely push the limits of a laptop system. I'd recommend first: do NOT run GPU apps on your system, and second: set your preferences to run only one CPU unit at a time.
