Updated to the newest version, 7.6.33 (x64) and after restart I have 'gpu missing, waiting to run...' in every task that requires the GPU. So working only 5 tasks, for every free CPU core.

I've checked through the menu but found no option like 'restart gpu' or something like that... Any idea how to solve this?

solved, after un-checking

solved, after un-checking 'service' when installing. But why does that error show up when it's checked?

Because 'service' means don't use the gpu, it's mostly used by computers that are in businesses that  can have multiple users that log in and out all day long. In Windows the gpu can not be used across multiple users like that so it turns it off and doesn't even try hopefully meaning fewer problems.
