While my Windows PC crunches regularly per schedule and uploads results, I am unable to get the Boinc Manager to authenticate - it always shows 'no connection' and I receive pop-up prompts to change my password

Given that the PC is authenticated, in which file/folder can I find the password? Reinstalling Boinc doesn't appear to be a solution

I think if you asked this in the Crunchers Corner forum this would get more eyeballs and therefore solutions for you
