Hi there
Can anyone tell me why the boinc icon in the notification area from time to time is marked with a red dot?

It means that the BOINCmgr part is not able to connect to the BOINC core client through localhost IP and default port 31416 used for RPC. Intermittent could point and interference from the AV or firewall software. Check for permissions of all the exe components and any alert log entries.
