By going back to version 6.2.28 of BOINC, my computer is now crunching for my selected projects.

Thanks, I now have a new password for my account (as an aside, I did know my password; I had failed to use it).

I have rebooted my computer. The BOINC Manager now presents me with these messages:

There is a greater context to this: I did uninstall/delete BOINC Directory/reinstall, several times. I am sorry now, but I did lose projects' data. I'm guilty of impatience and incompetence.

After starting the Manager connects to the client but then clears the listing of Projects under the Projects tab.

Hi Folks,

I am using Windows Vista Home Premium Service Pack 2, and BOINC version 6.6.38.

It seems that I have installed the BOINC software okay. The problem I have stems from my attempting to attach to a third project. I identified myself but provided the wrong password for my account. I did receive a message to resend my password but I cannot find a way to do so. This is because the BOINC Manager at the 'Projects' tab cycles through the appearance of my selected projects and a blank page.

How should I proceed?
