Per Project Scientist Sidd:

It seems that it is only occurring for people with windows. The other platforms seem to be running ok. We had some trouble getting the binaries for windows in order to release, I am thinking something went wrong there, as none of the windows runs are passing. I took down the Windows version for now until I figure it all out.

If you are a Windows user please abort all N-body tasks and go into Preferences and uncheck "MilkyWay@Home N-Body Simulation" for now.

Thank you.

Thanks for the update.
I wondered why after 7hrs (overnight) a task was 100% complete but not being processed.
This was usually tying up 3 of 4 CPU cores :/ so other tasks weren't being started.
I've now aborted the NBody tasks.
