I have been watching task 479389922 on a dedicated machine for a few hours. It has been at 100%, but it is not stopping.

Is there anything I can do to get credit for the 27+ hours it's been running? Is it salvageable?

Thanks,
Chuck

I can't explain the "stuck at 100%" part, but since those tasks seem take about 31 hours or so on your computer, and you're at 27 hours, I'd say it's worth the wait to see if it completes in a reasonable time. If it is indeed stuck and doesn't complete, there's no way to recover the task.

Looking at some of your results, the task is being stopped and restarted by your BOINC client a very large number of times. (So many that the start of the log is truncated.) While in theory this shouldn't affect the reliability of the program, I can't rule out the possibility that rapid restarts might cause some unexpected problems.

It did complete finally. Thanks!

Any idea why it re-starts so many times? The computer is a dedicated machine. I did stop it once recently to do some Windows updates, but thats all I can remember. I think that machine is set to switch applications every 300 minutes. Should I make it longer?

Thanks yet again for your help! You've helped me before in the past and I appreciate it.

Could it be something as simple as one of the various options on the Preferences window, particularly the "Processor Usage" or "Exclusive Applications" tab?

I see that machine has only 1GB of RAM; maybe some of the values on the "Disk and Memory Usage" tab in Preferences is inhibiting BOINC.

You probably already thought of those checks...

I thought of that too, particularly the 25% setting where Boinc STOPS crunching when the machine has less then 25% of the cpu free, I always change that to zero on my Boinc only machines.
