At some point on my main computer BOINC either stopped respecting exclusive CPU/GPU applications or is unable to monitor running processes.
Unfortunately I don't know when exactly this stopped working since this is a fairly beefy machine. It could correlate to 7.10.2 but I'm not certain. The machine is running Win7 so this is unrelated to Win10 shenanigans.
I haven't noticed anyone having the same issue so I'm basically asking if I'm alone with this issue.

Make sure that Activity is set to Run based on preferences for CPU and GPU.

They are. The configuration has been basically unchanged for ages with no problems.
But I'm 99% certain the problem lies outside BOINC. I'll keep digging.
