I've joined SETI@home on 4 computers.
2 computers are low performance and I use
them in short time.

So I want to reject AstroPulse on specific
computer. (Not all computers by Preferences.)

Try putting your computers into "different locations" using the Home, School and Work options.
The "location" selection box for each computer is at the bottom of the page.

Then set the Seti options for the locations as desired.

I would probably put those two low performance computers into the same location, such as School, and then set School to do only the enhanced application only. Don't forget to the If no work for selected applications is available, accept work from other applications? to no.

Use another venue for that computer.

How?

Go to your account.
In the list of your computers, choose the one you want to single out. Click its Details link.
Scroll to the bottom of this page to Location. Seti it to a different venue, say Work. Click Update.

Go back to your account.
Next click Seti@Home preferences.
Click the link for Add separate preferences for work.
Change them so the resource share is correct, select only Seti_Enhanced, uncheck all the rest.
Click Add preferences.

Go back to your account.
Click Computing preferences.
Click the link for Add separate preferences for work.
Change your preferences according to choice.
Click Add preferences.

Open BOINC Manager on that computer.
Advanced view->Projects tab.
Select Seti@Home
Click Update.

That should do it. :-)

Set up a separate venue (pick one home, school, work) in your account SETI@home preferences and uncheck AP's and 'accept work from other applications'. Then on the main account page, view 'ccmputers on this account', then details for the system you want to change, change location from default (-) to the venue you set up. Update the page, then do an update on the computer itself to make it use the new preferences.
