Is it possible to delete "unused" computers, because my computer list has 3 computers which don't even exist any more, either because there OS has been upgraded or there whole system has been upgraded. It's really annoying to have 3 computers in the list that don't do nout, I just want the 2 that are used (Linux machine, XP Home SP2 machine) because there the only ones that are still here.

You can delete them only under one condition: they haven't been sent any WU's, otherwise they can not.

If possible, please use the Questions and Problems for this kind of questions as this board is used for Life in the universe, radio SETI, and SETI@home's search for ET.

Usually, there's a 'delete' link when you view your computers, but I noticed that some of my pc's don't have it.

Delete link doesn't work because of WU's. But my list of computers look stupid now, 3 of them don't even exist.

I already deleted a bunch of my cpu's. I only have two actual machines running seti. One's an old laptop with three os's on it.


Gotta love installing software on USB keydrives.

Hi!

It's not possible to "delete" old computers from your list as mentioned B4, but you could merge them!

look here!
