But 1 client should show 100% use of 1 core in Task manager. [I think.] It needs exclusive access to a core because the CPU has to feed the GPU with the calculations. If it doesn't have exclusive access, it runs much slower.

@PPM: The client isn't new, just the WUs. You were fine before the new WUs, and now you're not. Please delete the work folder and the queue file, and download a new WU. Is it in the "new" group? If it is, delete it again and again until you get an "old" group WU. Run it. Do you have the same problems?

If you do, then it's something else, and we'll go from there. But don't yank stuff off the drive yet. Take it easy.
