1) Message boards : Questions and problems : EVENT LOG Message ... Not requesting tasks: don't need (Message 54152)

I am frequently getting the message ...
Not requesting tasks: don't need

Below is just a portion of My Recent Event Log which shows some of these circumstances: But, it has been happening for a long time.
i have usually assumed that it's because of the Estimated Time of the Total Number of Tasks from All Projects. I have my Preferences Set to maximum for the Number of Days.
However, at the time I am typing this Message, I only have 2 Tasks Running in ConstellationAtHome, and one only has between 3 and 4 Hours Remaining (about 61 Percent Complete), and the othr has about 5 Hrs and 10 Minutes remaining (about 43.90 Percent Complete).
I realise that these Percentages and Times are only approximations, and that Tasks can take longer than expected; but when I don't have any Tasks Waiting to be Reported and don't have any Ready/Awaiting to Start, it doesn't seem to make any sense that I "Don't Need Any New Tasks" (Especially from other Projects).

Any Ideas why this is happening?
ps .. I have occasionally Manually Suspended All Projects one by one, and Resumed and Updated them one by one (doing the Project/s that have Running Task/s last of all), and I have sometimes received New Tasks from one or more (but not all). However, this does not always happen, and I get the "Not requesting tasks: don't need" Message in the Event Log.

2) Message boards : Documentation : BOINC Says I Don't Exist (Message 50865)

I was just reading the Article on http://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/Publicizing_BOINC and I spotted a Typographical Error at the bottom of it. The Word 'Remember' is typed as 'Rmeember'. I just tried to Correct It but when I attempt to Log In on that page, I get a Message saying that "No Account For GALAXY-VOYAGER@bigpond.com Exists". However, it DOES Exist, because I have Logged In Here with that Account without any problems.
Somebody may like to Correct the Spelling Error. But I would also like to know why I can't Log In on that page: And Yes, I tried before I Logged In here.

At present I Do Not belong to any team/s. I have been offered the opportunity to Join a Particular Team, and I have considered it. However, there are numerous Teams that have Attracted My Interest. Also, I have an Interest in Creating My Own Team/s.
# Can I Join more than One Team: If so, can I Join One or More Particular Project/s Up in a Particular Team, or The Same Project in Multiple Teams?
# Can I Create My Own Team/s with Particular Project/s in the same manner as above: Or, can I Create My Own Team with All My Projects, and Join Other Teams as above?

A number of Users have been having Problems with Nvidia Graphics Card Driver. I have attempted to Update on several occasions, only to find that my Nvidia is Up To Date: Well, so the message informs me.
Anyway, I enquired at one of our Local Computer Stores Tecnichal department today, and I was told to UNINSTALL Nvidia, and REINSTALL The LATEST Version from Scratch; but do it from Nvidia's Official Website. I'm going to try try this suggestion, and if it seems to solve the Issue, I'll Post an Update on here ASAP. I'll wait until about a week after I Reinstall It, to give it a fair chance.


Just a quick Update:
I forgot to mention (above), although I have siscussed it in Other Message Forums, that D.E.P. (Data Execution Program) was Closing My NVIDIA Control Panel whenever I attempted to Open it (the Control Panel): It informed me that if ONE Program in Particular was Being Closed Down by D.E.P., that I should contact the Provider, to see if there was a Version Available that was Compatible with D.E.P..
I followed the Suggestion of The Tech Person I mentioned in above Paragraph, and I Uninstalled The Graphics Driver (V307.74 and the associated Update 1.10.8), and went to the NVIDIA CORPORATION website. Upon The Webpage Opening, My Computer IMMEDIATELY (on its own Accord), Installed a NVIDIA Graphics Driver which, however, was an Earlier Version (I think it was 306.97). This must have already been on my System, but apparently had not been Installed. I then UNSTALLED IT (V306.97 or whatever it was), and Restarted My PC (upon instruction), and then went back to NVIDIA website, and DOWNLOADED & INSTALLED (from scratch), Graphics Driver V307.7
This seems to have corrected the Issue. I can now OPEN NVIDIA Control Panel and I have adjusted Settings accordingly. I'm guessing that the problem was The Earlier Version was Conflicting because it was Incompatible with D.E.P..

I'll follow up with results later next week.

6) Message boards : Questions and problems : Boinc freezes computer (Win7) (Message 47926)

Scrap The FREE Anti-Virus Crap, and INVEST in a Full Security Suite such as TREND Micro Titanium Security. Remember the Old saying ..... "You get what You pay For!" ... "Pay nothing, Expect Nothing In Return". Just consider how much your Computer/s is/are worth, and then add the Value of all the Software and Data: And You Install FREE Stuff to Protect It !??!? ..... I have used FREE security Programs many years ago, and it was WORSE than a VIRUS Itself: Upon Installation, it Run an Auto Scan, and Deleted Things that it shouldn't, and then repeatedly refused to allow Legitimate Programs stcetera to work. No names mentioned, but it was a Well Known brand of Free Software.
7) Message boards : Questions and problems : Will BOINC wear down my computer? (Message 47904)

I have been wondering the same thing. I am using BOINC on my HP Notebook and my ACER Desktop M1800. I have both Computers Tuned ON Most of the time, and have been Running All Projects Constantly. The HP only runs ONE task at any time, but the ACER runs 2 at any one time (this is happening by default). i sometimes Suspend tasks if I need to use The Computer/s and I need 100% of the resourses for Optimum Speed etc.. I also Suspend The Projects occassionally and Place them in SLEEP/HIBERNATE Mode for at least a Few Hours or even Overnight every couple of days, and use SHUTDOWN MODE about once a week; However, I sometimes Run either or both constanly for 3 or 4 days, and only put in Sleep Mode for a few hours over that period of time.

ps .. Could you reply in English please. I cannot not read your above response to the Other Users Message (so could you also Edit That reply and Post it in Englis below the current one).

Thanks.
