    How To Get Rid Of Charity Enginel? Uninstall Charity Engine Method. Is a virus or malware and is Charity Engine Safe?

    Charity Engine is a free app for PCs based on the BOINC software from Berkley University. The software was created by Worldwide Computer Company Limited. How the project works is that it sells spare computing power to corporations and universities, sharing the profits with partner charities and awarding regular cash prizes to users of the software.

    If there aren't any corporations buying the computer power, then Charity Engine will donate it to other volunteer computing projects like [email protected], [email protected], and Malaria Control with prize draws funded with donations.

    The [email protected] project reported in August 2014 that Charity Engine contributed over 125,000 computers to their grid.

    Charity Engine was established to allow millions of computers to raise millions of dollars for great causes thanks to the computer power that wasn't being used anyway. Charity Engine takes on massive computing jobs and turns them into 1000s of smaller jobs, each one small enough for even a basic home computer to process in the background.

    After every PC has completed their piece of the puzzle, the correct answer is sent in and some money is generated for the charity and also the prize fund. It also increases the chance to win the prize fund. So where is the money coming from?

    It primarily comes from science and industry. The network of computers is rented out like one giant supercomputer, with all the profits shared equally between charities and the lucky users grabbing the prize.

    Charity Engine adds under 10 cents per day to the energy costs of a computer and is able to generate up to $20 for each charity (not to mention the prize draw) for every dollar of electricity consumed.
