I have turned off the permission to use my PC to send updates to others on the Internet. Have you?

Got another update and a reboot, accepted by me. I suspended two vLHC tasks using Virtual Box but not the two CPDN ANZ tasks. Luckily, I found them only suspended.

If you go to the search panel at lower left type Win U. You will be able to change from automatic updates to updates after a notification. I suspend all BOINC projects before allowing an update. I also forbid the use of my PC to send updates to other users.

I am running two CPDN anz tasks that started when the OS was 8.1. s/Timestep was 5.xxxx. Now it looks like it has become 3.xxxx. I shall wait until next trickle to confirm.

Perhaps a guide would be the Seconds/Timestep numbers for the 2 OS.



On my Windows 10 PC and 2 anz models I am getting 5.xxx s/timestep. Yes,the tasks are running slowly but I am running also vLHC@home, ATLAS@home, Einstein@home GPU and CERN Summer Challenge on my A10-6700 CPU, 20 GB RAM because of Atlas.

I had a big Windows 10 update, 3915 files for a total of 1.8 GB. The PC rebooted at night and I had to rebuild the BOINC environment. No problem for 2 CPDN anz tasks, very long winded but all my Virtual Box using CERN tasks were powered off. I killed them, installed a newer Virtual Box release (4.3.30) and restarted them. The only project that gave me trouble was not a BOINC project, but the CERN Summer Challenge Competition. But finally I restarted even that. I also remade a Windows repair disc on a DVD, just in case.

I have installed Windows 10 as an update to Windows 8.1. It was running 4 BOINC tasks, including 2 CPDN tasks, plus a CERN Summer Challenge task outside BOINC. All BOINC taks restarted immediately after installation, then I had to reboot to start the Challenge task. I am no Windows expert, as I use Linux on two other computers, but having found Windows 8, soon updated to Windows 8.1, on a PC I bought from HP, I decided to try it and installed BOINC and Virtual Box, as requested by the CERN Projects.

At vLHC@home, which needs VirtualBox, there is a beta test CERN Summer Challenge which admits users from Google, Fecebook, Twitter, Live. No need to be a BOINC user.

So far I had mo problems with reboots. It is easier to deal with Windows than with Linux which runs on 2 computers, a HP laptop and HP minitower, running SuSE Linux 13.2 and 13.1 respectively.

Since I am a beginner Windows user, when I get a Windows update asking me to reboot I simply say yes and reboot. Then I start first BOINC manager, then Virtual Box. All my BOINC programs start regularly.
