Go to the Messages tab in BOINC Manager, copy the last 20 or so entries there and paste them into a reply here. That'll give us an idea of what BOINC is trying to do.

Here you apparently hit the Update button. Considering that BOINC had just been in communication with the project, literally only seconds ago, there’s no point to doing that—although it’s pretty harmless. If you keep doing it, BOINC will just wait longer and longer before contacting the project.

Here, less than ten seconds after E@h began crunching, you Reset the project, dumping all the programs and data it just downloaded! Why did you do that?

Then BOINC starts E@h over, asking for more work and a fresh copy of the application files …

Only a minute after E@h gets going again, you hit the Reset button once more. Don’t!
