I only wanted to run a couple of projects but for some reason the sub-project "Proth Prime Search (Sieve)" has both the Nvidia GPU (CUDA) and AMD/ATI GPU (OpenCL) checked. I have gone in and unchecked these several times and when I save the preferences they still show up on the page. I do not even have an AMD card in my pc and I never checked it to begin with.

What should I do? I am thinking it is a website programing error.

This is the default behavior. If you turn on GPU but don't select any subprojects, we select PPS Sieve for you. Likewise if you turn on CPU but don't select anything we choose SGS and PPSE for you.

The first thing you need to do is to at least turn off the "Use ATI GPU" near the top of the preferences screen. Then you can unselect the PPS Sieve for ATI and it'll stay off. If you don't intend to do any GPU work right now, you should also uncheck "Use NVIDIA GPU". Or, if you plan on running some other GPU subproject, turn it on in the preferences and unselect PPS Sieve. It will then stay deselected.

I always turn off the GPU box near the top if I don't want to crunch with my GPU at that moment, so I had never run into this myself.

Ok thanks, I have other projects that I am running with the GPU and now I have a boat load from PrimeGrid. At least they are short runs so I should get them done pretty fast when the program gets to them.

Boinc itself is only SUPPOSED to download enough work that it can finish before the deadline of each unit, yes you should be fine. It isn't perfect but if you just leave it alone it should finish all of the units prior to the deadlines.
