BOINC has had Nvidia GPU support since the start of CUDA in 2004. It all depends on drivers.
Install the correct drivers and add the projects that use your GPU, and it'll work itself out.

Years and dates on executables just mean they haven't changed in years and are still doing correct work for that application. If the project deems them unnecessary, the project will remove them automatically and replace them with newer versions. The 6.04 application is a beta application, so I would expect the developers to be more active on getting reports in of problems with it or any part of the application.

Looks to me like Rosetta starts its tasks through that console window, and as you say, it can't find a certain executable. Maybe the graphics executable.
Not really a BOINC problem, but a project problem. Have you tried looking it up on their forums, or reporting it there?
What happens when you close the console window, does the task continue to run, or does it err?
If you look in the \projects\boinc.bakerlab.org_rosetta directory in your BOINC Data directory, does it have that rosetta executable and is it an exe file? Is it the right version number for the tasks app?

Use of GPUs is a per project preference, so if you don't want to use the GPU and you have multiple projects, make sure to uncheck using the GPU at all the projects.

Web preferences.
Go to the project website, your preferences, Project preferences and uncheck use of the GPU(s) there, then save the page and have BOINC contact the project.

Looks to me like a screen corruption, perhaps video driver corruption. Does it only happens when BOINC runs, or on use of other programs as well?

You have two Nvidia GPUs. BOINC uses only the best of the same brand GPUs, when more than 1 is in the system and detected. The other one will be ignored. Because you don't have anything in cc_config.xml, BOINC follows those preferences.

If you want to use both GPUs, add the following to your cc_config.xml file.

<cc_config>
   <options>
       <use_all_gpus>1</use_all_gpus>
   </options>
</cc_config>


You can make a cc_config.xml file with Notepad (if Windows).
Add the above, then save as an all files option, so it doesn't end in .txt
Save to your BOINC Data directory.

A restart of the BOINC client is required to make use of this.

It is a notice, not an error message. I think you can ignore it.
It'll probably be visible because you added a debug flag to the Event Log Flags window.
If it doesn't interfere with the running of BOINC, just ignore it.

According to the source code notes:
// It is possible that computing (CPU or GPU) could be suspended indefinitely if the idle time required before continuing computing is longer than the time required to suspend computing when the computer is idle.  In this case an alert message will be sent.

Let me put it here: Maanlander Nova C (IM-1) is going to land on the moon.
Youtube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vqFS0IcOrDo

"Flight controllers chose to exercise an additional orbit before starting the IM-1 Mission landing sequence. The new anticipated landing time is 1724 CST. (00:24 u CET)
We expect the landing stream to start on the IM-1 web page and NASA TV at 1600 CST. The content on both streams is identical."

I have Asteroids@home, Einstein@home, and Milkyway@home running. I have run Boinc for most of 20 years so it has few mysteries.
Yet apparently you missed out on that the projects you run, do not use VirtualBox. (See the supported platforms at the supported projects)
Also, tasks run through VirtualBox run only on the CPU, they do not use the GPU, because of driver restrictions. The same driver restrictions you run into when using a virtual desktop, running BOINC as a service, or connect via remote desktop.

So, since your projects don't use VB, it's not needed to install the BOINC version with VB included.

This site was down for at least an hour, as well. So probably something happening over there. Server movement?
I can't get http://ucbsystems.org/ to load anything useful, either.

Tried setting prefferences again and it doesn't change the file.
Which preferences did you try to change?
cc_config.xml holds debug flags and advanced options for running of apps, making log files and steering of GPUs. It does not hold the preferences from the preferences menu or the website. Those are stored in global_pref.xml (for preferences from the website) and global_prefs_override.xml (for preferences from BOINC Manager).

If it's anything like Android, BOINC will only use the efficiency cores, not the performance cores as these are reserved for the operating system. You'd have to take that up with Intel and Microsoft to get that changed.

As for your other problem, we do have some rules around here for when it comes to the user asking for help, that they give all the information they can to get the helpers going. Looks like no one was interested.
