You need to unhide your computer so we can look at it, unhiding your computer will not reveal any secure info, just click on my name/view computers, at the left and you will see what is revealed.

These are probably "ghost" results, where the server thinks you've received them but for whatever reason, your computer never did. You haven't spent any time on them, so no CPU loss for you. They've also been sent to three other hosts. Some of them have already been validated, many have two results back, and if they don't get a quorum before their deadline, more results will be sent out, so the science won't be lost. As the deadlines hit for the ghosts, your daily quota will be reduced by 1, but the next time you return a successful result it'll be doubled up to a max of 100/cpu/day, so you'll likely never notice it.

Bottom line, don't worry 'bout it.
