Reinstall as service on Win7

So I installed v7 client with all its default options. The GPU slot keeps failing, so I said to myself, 'I'll just reinstall as a service so it will only do SMP. And besides, I can log off the box and it will still be folding' So I did a reinstall *and* kept existing configuration (after all I dont want to reenter the passkey right?) Lo and behold the GPU slots are still there. I know I can delete them myself. And I know it was my choice to keep the existing configuration. I consider it a bug in the install to not remove those non functional GPU slots on Windows 7. There should have been a warning at the very least.

Wait, why was the GPU slot failing?

Current config includes currently configured slots as well. And the install did give you that option to keep the config. Wasn't displayed as a warning, but still...

And Jesse is correct. GPUs not working is not a good reason bypass them when folding. Describe the GPU hardware, and post the *** System *** section of the log. We might be able to get them running for the cause.
