Use the reference info. It has been created since 2018 and is currently being actively maintained. Start with the new participant thread and the first few posts in the following thread listed /linked in the site map. Knowledge and understanding will help avoid delays and irritation for already-answered questions and silly inefficient choices.
The "Available mersenne prime hunting software" attachment is a must-read and understand, in my opinion. Skim the rest of the index for future reference.
Choosing Factor5 is a symptom of a substantial lack of understanding specific to GIMPS. That probably is very curable.

The DC guide was created years before the beginning of development of GPU GIMPS software, some of which can be run on some IGPs. Perhaps a moderator could edit to include a notice that some of the content is quite obsolete and a link or more than one to more current info.
