I can't see your computers so I can't tell you why it erred out. Without that info, we can't help you.

It's not clear what you want:

- if you want to get credit for 'Computation error' task (it is not a project, it is a task) - this is not possible
- if you want to continue the same task - this is not possible (the task is not anymore in your computer, it is already reported as 'Computation error' and deleted from your computer)
- if you want to get the same task from the project servers - this is not possible (some other 'random' computer will do it)

The 'Task 2517918385' shows:
Exit status -202 (0xffffffffffffff36) ERR_SHMEM_NAME
- exit code -202 (0xffffff36)"
but I don't know what caused this
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/result.php?resultid=2517918385

Probably 'No heartbeat from core client for 30 sec - exiting' caused by 'heavy' computer load (e.g. antivirus scan, game), high HDD load (e.g. big install) or hang DNS lookup:
http://boinc.berkeley.edu/dev/forum_thread.php?id=7736

It (the crash/error) is sometimes also caused by using the BOINC screensaver

***

If you want to not get anymore these long running tasks - go to:
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/prefs.php?subset=project

... and select SETI@home yes, AstroPulse no and 'If no work for selected applications is available, accept work from other applications?' no

That is to bad spent long days for this task to complete 94% done and got transfer to SETI. If I can't get it I should get credit for I completed.
Thank You

If I can't get it I should get credit for I completed.

No one of us gets credit for 'Computation error' ('Error while computing') tasks nor for 'Invalid tasks', e.g. see these computers:
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/results.php?hostid=5292089&offset=0&show_names=0&state=5&appid=
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/results.php?hostid=5925627&offset=0&show_names=0&state=4&appid=


To avoid frustration with long running but crashed tasks (which never give any credit) the simple thing for you is to deselect AstroPulse in your SETI@home preferences (the link in my previous post)

(The same AstroPulse task that computes for a days on your CPU using the standard/stock application takes only a few hours on an ATI GPU using the Optimized Applications.
I don't know how long it will take on your GPU: AMD Radeon HD 6200/6300/7300 series (Wrestler) (384MB)
Your GPU is integrated in the CPU: AMD E-300 APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics
All integrated (in the CPU or in the Chipset) GPUs are usually less powerful than the discrete (in the video card) GPUs
)


It seems that you only complain about credit and don't say anything about why the error happened.
Did you read what the causes may be (e.g. do you use the BOINC screensaver)?
What triggered this particular crash?
(if you can remember what was happening on the computer (e.g. high HDD load) around the time of the crash.
Or is it your DNS Server do not respond? (read the thread in my previous post)
)
