You've asked us to update, so I've downloaded, (three times),the install pack with Virtual Box, get "File System Error - 65535)" when trying to run it on here, Windows 8.1 64 bit.

Doing a search on File System error "-65535" I found this thread with a lot of people running Windows 8/8.1 with the exact same problem. It's a Windows error.

You may want to try the option to install BOINC with running as administrator. Although what you first best do is check the properties of the hard drive you try to save to, Tools->Error-checking->check both "Automatically fix file system errors" and "Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors"->Start.
This will most probably tell you that it cannot do that without rebooting, so allow your computer to reboot, and on the next bit do NOT press any key to stop the disk check, but allow it to run. This can take quite some time, depending on the size of the hard drive, the speed thereof and how many problems it has.

Both my machines have SSD's, but I can run that when I get back, no problem.

SSDs can also have bad sectors.

Yes, of course they can, it was the speed issues you mentioned that prompted me to say so.

So today the new version thing popped up again and I figured I may as well try it again, this time, it ran completely normally and is running again 7.8.3 x64. I am logged in as myself and done nothing different. <shrug>
