Hello,

When I`m running BOINC on my machine (Athlon XP 2600+, 768 MB DDR Ram) it hapens very often, that Boinc doesn`t work.

It is running (albert or seti is also listed in the task manager) but the process-time and the percentage are not changing for hours or changing very slowly - even if I don`t use the computer.

I had this problems a few days ago the first time, it stopped, but now it`s back again.....

I don`t know how to solve it...I reinstalled Boinc, I delete the workunits several times, but it doesn`t change....

Any ideas?

Thank you,

Best Regards,
Hermann from Austria

Did you check which process is using the CPU. Use the taskmanager
and sort processes by CPU usage.

Hello MIchael, Thank you,

Hello MIchael,

Thank you, this led me to the reason for the problem.

My firewall uses more than 90% of the CPU-Power.
When I switch it off, albert runs :-)

Now I have to find out how to set the CPU-Power for the Firewall down....
