Problem resolved, I did a BOINC re-install.

For the last couple of days, I have not received any new tasks. Is there a problem on your end or my end?

Well I still don't see anything that states this problem is resolved so I will remain NNT on Milkywave until I see something positive.

Is this issue being addressed

Does the latest Milkyway WU software use SSE2 or similar? Some older machines do not have those instructions (especially AMD), and that may be the cause of this rash of Compute Errors with Illegal Instruction.


Well since I am having my failures on an Intel i5-750 system with Windows 7, I don't believe this is the problem.

Well another 45 hours of wasted computer time and electricity for 2 more -161 error code failures (in addition to several previous ones). But that is it! I have aborted all of my other Milkyway tasks and will accept no more tasks until I am notified this problem has been fixed.

I have a task (de_nbody_model1_1_2789_1284175894_3) that is displaying a Computation error after almost 24 hours (23:45:26) of computer time! What might have gone wrong and, more importantly, how can I prevent this from happening in the future? I hate to waste almost a days work for nothing!
