World Community Grid uses the processing power of computers connected to the internet. The processing power is being used for many not-for-profit researches (list available in the website). All you need to do is to create an account, install a small piece of software in your PC/ Mac and its done. Its absolutely safe.
Most of the time, we do not use 100 percent of the CPU and this can be used for such purposes. You do not have to worry about starvation of your processes, as you can set the preferences like the percentage of CPU and disk space that can be used by world community grid and ensure that the processing power of your system is used only when you are not using it.
