I just got back from doing Folding@Home for a while.

One of my computers is a brand new computer, which did OK on Folding@Home, but is doing horrible here w/Einstein@Home.

Out of 26, I've had 21 Client/Computer Errors.

My system is an Acer L100, w/an AMD Dual Core 2.2 GHz A64 4200+ x2 processor, 2.0 gb memory, and Windows XP Pro. It is not overclocked.

My other computer, a Dell Precision 470 Workstation, w/dual 3.2 GHz Xeon's is doing OK, w/no errors.

Any reason(s) for my problem w/my Acer?

Problem w/my A64 4200+ x2 Powered Acer.

The current Einstein version has only alpha-quality.
As there are lots of different errors (not only on
your box), it is most likely some wrong memory access
issue (uninitialized pointer, array too small or so)

p.s.: some of your results crashed with a "good" hint :

Have you excluded all of BOINC and its subdirectories from
your virus scanner?
