On the 23rd I had 31 WUs time out on one computer. I notice that they all had short times attached but there is still no reason that I can see for this many units to error out, unless they were some sort of ghosts?

All tasks issued on 9 October. I've got a number of ghosts dating from 10 October, it must have been a difficult time for the servers. As Tim says, nothing to worry about.

Thanks for the quick responces.

And it is good to hear that it is nothing to worry about.

Almost just in time for Halloween!
