There was recently a thread about this happening on Linux. I am having the same problem, except on Windows 10.

Roughly every other day, the BOINC manager will stop working with the message "Invalid client RPC password Try reinstalling Boinc". Most of the time, I can make the manager reconnect by doing File / Select Computer and select the local machine. But the disconnect keeps happening.

This started with an older version of BOINC, but updating to 7.16.20 has not stopped the problem.

Is there anything I can do to fix this?

Thanks.

Go to your BOINC Data directory and remove gui_rpc_auth.cfg, then exit & restart BOINC.
