here for a complete step-by-step through the whole process!
If you're running the GUI Client, uninstalling it after it completes its current WU, and afterinstalling the NewBBRCruncher suite, it could dramatically improve your WU return rate!
It also can be set up on many systems so you won't be prompted to close the SETI software when you are trying to shut down your system!!
The Suite can be found from one of several links here.

The easiest solution to this problem would be download the latest version of SETISpy, available here.
For users with versions before 3.1.1, here is the solution:
This question gets asked a lot here. Here is a quick guide to correcting the problem, found on the SETISpy Web Site.
Recently, the Update button on the User Statistics screen has stopped working, and the User Name hyperlink has disappeared. What happened?
I have tracked the problem down to the user_info.sah file, which SETI@home uses to store user information. My best guess is that due to recent security breaches, SETI@home management has decided not to include the user email address in the user_info.sah file like they used to. SETI Spy cannot update the user stats without the user email address. SETI Spy 3.0.6 and later provides a workaround, but you have to edit the setispy.ini file using the following steps.
Stop your SETI Spy if it is running.
Download the latest version of SETI Spy (3.0.6 or later) if you have not already done so.
Open the setispy.ini file in your SETI@home folder with a text editor like NotePad.
Add a line "BackupEmailAddr=youraddress@yourISP.com" just below the UserPercentage= line in the [Stats] section. Do not use quotes, and replace youraddress@yourISP.com with the email address you log into SETI@home with. The [Stats] section should now look something like the image below, with the added line shown in red. Don't worry of the lines are not exactly in the same order. Just add the BackupEmailAddr= line below the UserPercentage= line.

Start SETI Spy.
Here's a few easy steps you should follow to make the switch:
1) Uninstall the SETI@Home Screen Saver version. Keep the WU and the SETI folder.
2) Click HERE and scroll down the page and download i386-winnt-cmdline.exe to your SETI Directory.
3) Start the CLI ("i386-winnt-cmdline.exe").
4) When it prompts for 1 or 2, enter 2.
5) Enter the email address you used with SETI@Home.
6) Now it will start over on the workunit you gave it then continue normal operation.
You can run the CLI with other programs listed in the Programs section. It will not affect your CPU time.
Any Visual Screen Savers that render 3D, render Ray Traced graphics, or create/display slide shows of large graphic images will just about kill SETI. SETI will wait for the CPU to become free and since the highly Visual Screen Saver is so CPU and memory intensive, SETI just sits there and grabs what little it can.
Moral. Use nothing but blank screen (or none) if you want SETI to crunch normally. Set your power saving features to turn off the Monitor after 10 to 30 minutes and or just turn off your monitor at night. Make sure to only use "None" or "Blank Screen" as your Screen Saver setting or your SETI WU (Work Unit) times will greatly increase.
here. Follow the steps there and you will be given HTML code to copy. Now make a New Text Document on your Desktop (right click on your Desktop, scroll down to New and click Text Document) and paste the HTML code there.
You have to copy, then paste this HTML code (from your Text Document you created and saved on your Desktop) into your post(s) at the end and it will show your current Work Unit status when you look at your completed post. You may also want to test your HTML code first to iron out any problems or bugs by using the Post Testing Forum Here.
