Which BOINC version you run (See Help->About BOINC in BOINC Manager). We'd just like the version number, please: for instance v7.8.2
There is no "Help / About BOINC" in the BOINC Manager menu.
The version listed under "Help / About BOINC Manager" is Version: 7.16.11 (x64) and wxWidgets Version: 3.0.1

What your problem is exactly, write it out in as much detail as you can.
It's not downloading any new tasks to process.
It had been running four tasks in calculation and listing four pending tasks. When it finished one, it started one of the pending tasks. When it transferred completed tasks out, it also transferred the same number of new tasks in
About 2 weeks ago, I noticed that it had downloaded more than the number of replacement tasks. The number of Pending Tasks had increased to 5. That seemed odd, but did not seem a problem.
About 6-7 days ago, the number of pending tasks dropped back to four, then over the next 2-3 days dropped to 3, then 2, then 1. It did not do this on consecutive downloads. It ran on each number for 2-3 downloads before dropping again. It now has no pending tasks and has completed and sent out all the tasks it had downloaded. The log now shows the following sequence of events, repeating at intervals of 10-60 minutes.

Checking presence of 4 project files

What you have done so far to try to remedy the problem.
Verified that the project is not suspended in any of the ways I can find to suspend or unsuspend it. Exited and restarted BOINC Manager. Rebooted the computer.

If applicable, the project(s) that you have the problems with and if they have multiple applications, which ones give you problems.
I am running only Rosetta@Home. I don't know how to tell whether it has multiple applications or not.

Post the first 40 - 100 lines from your BOINC Event Log (CTRL+SHIFT+E), including it showing what your BOINC is doing, which project tasks it is running.

https://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/server_status.php shows that at this moment the project has 1 task ready to send. So it's effectively out of work. Nothing wrong with your BOINC.
