At the BAM, the project Einstein@home is attached twice. I can't remove the additional project, because the "remove" botton is not activated. Also I can't merge the computers, which appear doubble in E@H, it is not acceped.
In my BOINC total credit for this computer, I am already losing 22M on credits! What can I do? I never attached E@H twice in BAM, it popped up one day and make troubbles.
I am running BAM 7.8.2 (x64), Widget versions 3.0.1.
OS is WIN10 64bit and WIN10 32bit.
Pleae can somebody help me to solve this issue?

You don't lose points... They are inalienable yours / coupled to your email account(s), albeit sometimes CPID synchronization is getting messed up such as in this case. Seems best is to detach from BAM, as that disables various client functions, then detach from the project(s), check the BOINC Data directory for any files with Einstein in the name and move them away to a backup location. Restart client to ensure no Einstein shows, then add Bam accountmanager again and sync. If Einstein at BAM is set to be added by default, it should get added back.

There's a bug with 7.8.2 with BAM and connections with some projects.

There's a thread on Einstein on how to manually edit your files to get around this.

However, you can revert back to 7.6.33 or get the development release of 7.8.3 which seems to have fixed this. When you goto Download, select All versions and then it will appear. Make sure you select the correct version for your platform. Note that this is not a regular release so you may encounter other issues. If stability is your main concern, revert back to 7.6.33 until a new stable version is released.
