Dear all,
i have a problem with my Boinc client. From maybe 2 months i crunch only C@H and other projects are suspendet in my client. Yestarday i leave my home and check my boinc client and all was normal. After 3 hours i came back and see that my boinc client was with changed network settings, gpu settings and all of my projects was started to crunch. Only i use my pc. I have antivirus software, check my system with spybot for malwares and all is clear. My pc is with last boinc client version, last version of virtualbox and windows 7 ultimate. Do you have any idea what was happening???

Hi Misho, I suppose this could be the BOINC client reading your preferences from your account on some particular project, maybe C@H? To be honest I'm not an expert on how settings are handled between your local computer and the different projects to which you're attached. Perhaps you could ask on the BOINC forums?
