I just looked at my 2nd computer which is running 8 * ESP (single thread) and 7 of them say they have only been working for an hour or so. And 1 for about 9 hours! Its been running for over a day! No ESP have been finished yet so this computer has been slacking. Does anyone have any ideas why or where I should look to fix this? The computer crashed a couple of times in the day leading up to the challenge and I reverted back to settings/drivers/whatever from an earlier date - which didn't look like it disrupted Boinc's ESP activities - but it may have.
Cheers, Nick

Going by the event log, my computer hasn't slacked - it probably has finished * 8 ESP - and because I reverted to earlier settings in the middle of Boinc doing its thing - I haven't been credited for them. I don't know. The first event in the event log is now "cc_config.xml not found, using defaults". The event log says it has completed tasks and got new work. Moral is not to revert to earlier settings in the middle of a challenge. Probably.

Yes in the middle of a challenge it is best to adhere to the adage "step away from the keyboard" once things are running. I don't know if it works to change the threading of a particular task part way through. I wouldn't bother trying.

I see you have several ESP tasks turned in with at least one validated. So that is good. BOINC moves in mysterious ways.

Good ol' computer 1 - Shake - has finished 6 tasks. Oh well, I've lost 8 'completed' tasks. I suppose I now know that reverting windows settings will delete Boinc's config file. Whoops!
