If you go to your profile and do "Computers on this account", then click on the computer ID number, one of the values listed is:
Average CPU efficiency 0.569695

-- What does that mean?

-- Is there something I could do to raise the CPU efficency?

-- Would it help other apps?

Thanx!

-- What does that mean?

It is a product of (how much time your computer is switched on) x (how much of this time are BOINC apps allowed to run) x (how much % CPU do the apps consume) x (maybe I've forgot something)

In ideal case this efficiency converges to 1 (one).

-- Is there something I could do to raise the CPU efficency?

Run your machines at least 25x8, allow BOINC running 110% of the time and kill everything except BOINC & apps, disk driver, network driver and possibly the kernel ;-)

Find out what is causing your machine to only have errors, from your computers task list:
