In the web interface, I can view my computers just fine, with all the specs and credit earned correctly displayed. One of the computers, however, belongs to a friend who's computer I was using to test the BOINC software when I first learned about it, but since it is no longer running Seti/BOINC, I detached the projct and uninstalled BOINC from that computer.

I went to look at its stats by clicking the computer ID number, clicked "Delete this host" at the bottom, but it returns with an error that says:

"Error: existing results"

How should I go about deleting the record of this computer from my account?

The button should not have even been there for that host. The database keeps track of were every WU was sent to be crunched. Once you have downloaded a WU to a computer, you will never be able to delete that computer from your computer list.

I find that all but one of my machines is correctly speced.
For some reason it has named one machine Georgio.
I have worked over my system and the only name I find is SetiPrime, yet boinc see's it as Georgio.


Any ideas ?
