would never count down. It was always counting up.
It was using 90%+ CPU (One thread) plus the GPU.

Had to abort. Not wasting time with a task that counts up and not down.
Did a system restart and it still counted up.
% of work done never changed.

Your computer info shows

Your computer info shows "Coprocessors:[2] NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti (4095MB) driver: 436.48".  That task ID and Stderr output in there shows something important:

2019-10-25 00:45:35.8708 (219300) [normal]: OpenCL Device used for Search/Recalc and/or semi coherent step: 'GeForce GTX 650 (Platform: NVIDIA CUDA, global memory: 2048 MiB)

Your host tried to crunch that task with your older GPU. GTX 650 is probably incompatible with this new application.
You would need to make changes on the settings so that the app would run on the GTX 1050 Ti instead. I don't know what is the best way to do that. Somebody else will help.

Ok thanks guys.

I made a exclude gpu 1 cc_config file.

According to the event log its correctly configured.

So I will check on it when I get up. It is 1:30am here in Belgium.
GPU's are working on primegrid stuff at the moment. They should switch back to other work in about 6hrs.
