Hello,
whenever I click "No new tasks" in the BOINC manager, status changes to "Won't get new tasks" but I keep getting them (I am using GPU ones only). Other projects (rosetta, World Community Grid) behave as expected, only the Milkyway does not. Please, help.

You probably have a bunch cached on your computer. In Boinc Advanced View, press the Show all tasks, instead of Show Active Tasks. You will then probably see them all, highlight and abort them or let them finish. Selecting No new tasks, will just stop the downloads from the server, but continue to crunch what's cached. Suspend the project, will stop it completely.
