I downloaded your application on my Windows XP 32 bit machine despite being aware of not meeting system requirements. After installation (whole thing unpacked into Program Files folder) T tried to open up application and was welcomed with pop up window stating that I'm not able to run program. OK, I kind of expected this. Then I tried to uninstall Fold It. Everything started normally, but after few seconds, unistaller started unistalling EVERYTHING that was in Program Files. Literally EVERYTHING, other folders, other programs, some spare files. I killed process as soon as I realized what was happening (thank God, uninstaller shows directory of currently unistalling folder). Is this supposed to happen? If so, it is designed in a very bad manner and could have ended in forcing me to revive my PC from security copy.
Thank you for your concern

For information, I don't know about winXp but on my Win10 Pro 64-bit I had no problem installing AND uninstalling the downloaded installer from the front page. No extra files were deleted. Only the ones inside the specified folder were deleted, the Foldit folder itself and the link on the Desktop.
