Jake, sorry Man but I forgot to mention that any WU that requires three CPU's to run I am now aborting, please fix this ASAP

Jake,thanks for looking into it for me however the problem still exists and so unfortunately I've joined another site as well, I would love to dedicate my computers to Milkyway only but as I have said I can't check every half hour or so to see if every thing is operating OK.
Please let me know if you do find what the problem is and if it is fixed then I will return in full, by the way it maybe why you are having trouble with unreliable hosts, worth looking into wouldn't you say?

Hi Jake, thanks for getting back to me, basically they are nbodies for example (and each of these are off two of my computers) de_nbody_3_22_2018_v168_20k_data_3_152217750_236716_0 and de_nbody_3_22_2018_v168_20k_data_1_1522177504_216535_2
Now as I said it only applies to the units that require three CPU's to run, if there are three units working off separate CPU's then they run smoothly, I do have a third laptop that is SSD that has no problems at all so this may be a factor but as I have stated I've only had this problem reasonably recently so I would appreciate any advice you can give.
I can't remember the modfit units are affected but I may be wrong.
I look forward to your reply

Hello Jake and others, I have been with Milkyway for quite a while now and everything has been basically OK but over the last six or seven months the WU's I'm getting that run on 3 CPU's have been slowing down and stopping with the time remaining just adding up, pausing them for half an hour or so helps with most but not all, when you changed the work unit priority to 1 from 0 everything went well then when you changed back it all went haywire again.
Can anyone offer advice on this?????

Hi everyone, I have been running MilkyWay for a year or two now with no real problems but the last two days my computer turns itself off after running the program for about five minutes, suspend the activity and no problems.Any one else having problems or know what's happening. Nick

I'm a mug computer user wanting to use spare computer time to help science but lately it seems the result time has blown out from 4-12 hours to 20-50 hours as with many other helpers, am I missing something or are we becoming unwanted/useless?

Since the latest crash my smallest computer has a new task but my other two are ready to report earlier projects and have received no new tasks, problems still?
