Just download the Folding@home client (http://folding.stanford.edu/English/Download) and run it on your PC when you aren't using it. Be sure to enter the GrabCAD ID # in the configuration.

If you want you can use the the more advanced SMP client (support multi-core processors) or the GPU client (uses the graphics card to preform calculations). http://folding.stanford.edu/English/DownloadWinOther
