My pooter's been running an Astropulse unit for the last few weeks now, and it's only 11% done. Plus, it was due last Saturday. BOINC manager is advising me to abort the unit. How do I do that?

Also, what's the difference between Astropulse and Astropulse v5?

BOINC Manager->Advanced view->Tasks tab->hi-light the running AP task->Click Abort->Confirm.

Afterwards BOINC will eventually report it (at the next time it'll ask for work).

The difference between the two APs is a new application, which is slightly faster than the previous one and searches deeper within the data available.
