    Yeah that sorted it for me, just made a backup of the BOINC folder and then uninstalled/installed the new client.

    Tasks started of from where they had stopped.

    You can use simple view if you want, but I would definitely recommend the use of advanced view; it's far more powerful and gives you much more information.

    When it asks for password in setup, does that mean account key?

    I clicked on today, I'm not there. I think screwed up the password. An i7 @ 3.7 should have posted some points.

    Yes, the Boinc username and password during setup should be the same ones you use to login to the World Community Grid website.

    If you are using hertz9753 as your username you can find yourself here in the stats page: http://stats.free-dc.org/stats.php?page=team&proj=bwcg&team=22175&offset=201

    Can you post some screenshots of the tab called "Projects" under the advanced view? It should show something similar to this:

    Hmmm? I found your stats on the free dc site (third page for team TPU) and it says zero for the day. Maybe your rig hasnt returned the finished work units yet?

    Thats quite right my friend! You have all your threads crunching for you but it seems Boinc is not using those 8 threads 100%. To enable full usage, go to the advanced tab->preferences, then set the " on multiprocessor systems, use at most" option to 100%. Well this is if your rig isa dedicated cruncher and just use it to browse the net and do minor games! Hope this helps!
