Hi

I have BOINC 6.2.18 on my laptop (Win XP Pro SP3).

Last night and this afternoon, the service terminated unexpectedly, and I need to restart BOINC manager to restart the service.

You also get this error when you kill the service by killing boinc.exe in Task Manager. Are you sure that didn't happen?

You can go to the services applet (start->run->services.msc->OK), find BOINC, right click it, properties, Recovery. On first, second and following errors, set it to restart the service. OK out.

The other two messages are informational and benign.
