Thanks for your help. I did eventually guess that boincmgr.exe ran the experiment and got it back up. When I got it back up I was able to visit the appropriate forum where I read to exit and reboot the PC. I did this and discovered that indeed the experiment starts without any intervention on my part. I do seem to be sending a lot of trickles - every 40 minutes or so (although this reduced overnight). Is this usual?

Copy of message follow:

2) Message boards : BOINC Manager : Which file runs the experiment? (Message 14560)

If this is the wrong forum then I apologise. I (personally) don't find it easy to find my way around this website. I am attempting to run the Climate Change Experiment but cannot find the relavant forum.

I downloaded BOINC yesterday (28/12/07) and it seemed to be running OK. Today I went to look and found it had stopped and was displaying the following messages:

29-Dec-2007 11:29:10 [---] Resuming network activity
29-Dec-2007 11:29:15 [climateprediction.net] Sending scheduler request: To send trickle-up message. Requesting 0 seconds of work, reporting 0 completed tasks

29-Dec-2007 11:32:06 [climateprediction.net] Sending scheduler request: To send trickle-up message. Requesting 0 seconds of work, reporting 0 completed tasks

I thought that I would re-start it and so suspended the two screens and then exited the program. I then would have restarted BOINC but found there is a selection of .exe files in the BOINC directory:

Boinc.exe;
Boincmmd.exe
Boincmgr.exe
Boinctray.exe

I would try each one in turn to see what happens but am concerned that if I click on the wrong one then I could cause problems.

Which one will restart the experiment
