How can I turn off the graphics...that screen pops up and I usually have to do a cold start to get rid of it. I can do without graphics all together.
Help please...thank you.

Right click anywhere on your Windows Desktop->Properties->Screen saver->set screen saver from BOINC to None.

Next time you install an update of the BOINC client, in the third screen in the installer, click Advanced and uncheck "Use BOINC screensaver" before continuing the installation.

It's not possible to disable only the Seti screen saver and only run the screen saver of another project. It is possible to run the screen saver of anything else, though, like Windows. Then just choose something else, instead of BOINC in the Windows screen saver setup.
