This web site -> Your account -> SETI@HomePreferences -> EDIT -> Custom -> Save -> Edit. Set everything that says oscillation to 0. Save. Update from the client.

And if stopping it spin doesn't work, disable the screen saver or use another one: Right click on your desktop, properties, screen saver, select either anything other than BOINC, or None to use no screen saver at all.
