What time zone is this based on? I set mine to my EDT preferences and it stopped even though I was within the time period. I have now set it to "Run always", but then the question is, if I shut down the PC will it screw up?

It uses your PC time.

Preference settings are working fine on my PC, using setting of "Home" in general preferences. Using Win XP Pro SP1.

If you shut down your PC and start over, Boinc shut run again without problem.
