My Seti@home software has been analyzing the same packet of data for several days now and is stuck at 14% done. Astro-pulse is the software running. I went to the BOINC manager and it does not indicate any problems but it does indicate that it has been analyzing the same block of data for over 77 hours. Usually my computer takes between 8 and 12 hours on one block. Is there a way I can terminate this run and get a new batch?

Thanks Tullio, I had forgotten about that option. It is working on a new batch of data now and everything seems fine.
