I have solution for problem with showing graphics in BOINC. The only thing you have to do is:
1. Open "Computer Management" (Right click on "My Computer" and click on "Maintenace")
2. Open "Services and applications" and select "Services".
3. Find service called "BOINC", double click on it and open the second tab called "Login".
4. Set login from "This account:" to "Local system account" and click "OK" to save chcanges.
And that's it! Restart service or computer and graphics will show now!

They work (or a slight variation works) for Win NT4, 2K, XP, and 2003 Server. I suspect that it will not work for Win 95, 98 or ME. *NIX of course would be completely different.

These only matter if you

These only matter if you installed BOINC as a service. Then it will be listed in the "Services" tool. If you installed as single or shared user this does not apply at all ...

Can't install as a service on Win9x machines, so this does not apply.
