Nothing, really :-), as there is no option available that will physically delete your host from the DB. The next best thing is to detach that PC from E@H , and after some time of inactivity your PC will drop out of the list of active hosts associated to your account.

Thanks. If I detach all my computers from the project, will my account be deleted? As my current computers are not powerful enough to crunch the WU (I only put 5% CPU usage), I plan wait for new computer.

You can delete the host

You can delete the host eventually, when it no longer has any tasks appointed to it (amount of tasks is zero), when all have been purged from the database.

Check through your account
computers on this account
click the hostID number.
When amount of tasks is 0 you will have a delete this computer option at the bottom of this screen. This will only remove the hostID, it will not delete any credits you have accumulated or delete your account.

Thanks a lot. I detached

Thanks a lot.

I detached the computer, but the task given to that computer still show it's processing, not aborted. Is this the problem of BOINC or EAH?

Cheers
