I installed BOINC on a new PC and now Boinc manager crashes several times a day.

Status shows that it is not connected with a client. The cruncher (setiathome_8.05_windows_x86_64.exe is still processing (at least 2 on this moment, perhaps due to work stock.

The log is below. Some one recognizes this and has hints to solve this?

Thanks in advance

BOINC Manager is the graphical user interface, so that you can easier control the underlying client that does most all the work. It's this client (boinc.exe) that shows in your event ID.

If we want to debug this, we need a lot more information.
Check When requesting help on these forums for the absolute minimum.
But when saying 'new PC', it would be nice to know what that new PC consist of. What kind of cooling does it have? Is the PSU adequate?

Also check in stderrdae.txt in the BOINC data directory (default at C;\Programdata\BOINC, it's a hidden directory, so just drop the path into Windows Explorer) if there's any more information there about this crash. Check from the bottom of that log file.
Please do not private message me for tech support. Use the forums for that. Tech PMs will be ignored.

Colon not semicolon. Ageless is having <SHIFT> key difficulties. ;)

I wonder if anybody ever calls it semicomma??
