This is a very minor, yet annoying, problem I've seen a several times very recently. That is, these 3-cpu tasks are showing status as running and elapsed time is counting up but progress gets stuck (sometimes for hours). Restarting BOINC always gets it going again.

I updated BOINC about a week ago and wonder if the update might be the problem. I never noticed the problem with v7.8.3.

CPU type:Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-7200U CPU @ 2.50GHz [Family 6 Model 142 Stepping 9]
Number of processors: 4
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 Core x64 Edition, (10.00.17134.00)
BOINC version: 7.10.2

Hello
I have an Amd Radeon 380X graphic card and I have lot's of computation errors almost 50%
Once again It seams that this projects has unsolved computation issues on amd/ati graphic cards.

The team of this...so called "project" is probably not up to the task for fixing their own issues with graphic card computation. It is happenning very often, I mean very very often!

So it's a shit project for me !
I won't waste computation time and electricity on Milkyway anymore despite my respectable score and history.

If, like me you have lot's of computation errors with this...?project?
Crunch on Einstein at home wich is issue and error free !

Sincerly
Elvis
