What does it mean?
I have machine, that hit this error 7 times in a row, and then it's WU quota dropped to 1/day.

In my preferences, ther is no time/CPU limits set. I don't know then why this error occured? Boinc ver. 4.25/service, windows XPPro.

The machine and example of result.

I would say this machine needs attention.
Even the results reported as successful seem to be flawed:

These WUs don't seem to be completed correctly, yet they were marked as valid.
Is this machine overclocked, running too hot, perhaps bad memory...

Another question is, why did the E@H validator pass faulty results?
