I have just noticed on one of my currently running tasks that the program is also using my Nvidia card GPU - how do I stop this, I do not want my video card used in this manner. I have a quad core pc, it should not need my graphics GPU.

Project web site->Your account->Project preferences->Edit them.
There should be an entry there stating "Use Nvidia GPU", uncheck that one.
Check only "Use CPU".
Save changes with "Update preferences".

At the next contact with the project, these preferences will be used immediately. Do know that GPU work already cached in BOINC will have to be aborted or continued. Your choice there what you do with that.
