Go into Computing Preference and change "Suspend work when non-BOINC CPU usage is above" to either a higher number or to zero.

The default of 25% was way too low for most users.

... and I'm sure several tabs of Facebook ...?
... with the resource-hog list of 100s 'friends' at right opened/visible?

Blame the stupid student-grade (or school-made) type of script/html programing at Facebook (and what ugly interface!)
So say "WTF?!" to the proper place - Facebook

(I hate Facebook)

If you click on the link in Arkayn's post, you'll see it in the first section at the top, "processor usage".

Well....

You weren't asked to go into BOINC Manager and go into your Preferences. You were asked to check in your Computing Preferences here in your SETI account online.

On your picture it's already set to 0 (zero):
(if you normally use the settings in BOINC Manager (those on the picture) the same web-settings do not matter)




And you can't expect BOINC to do work (to start the computing apps) while you "browse" (= use the computer)
until you Enable/Check at least one of the red-arrows:




You can see that what you claim in your first post:
"preferences set to use 100% of the CPU"
- is true only about 100% 'CPU time', not about the 100% of the 'CPU chip/cores'

(but it's OK (not wrong) to free a core to feed the GPU
OTOH I'm not sure that this particular GPU integrated in-the-CPU is faster than one CPU core.
)

***

You have another issue: for some reason 'download error' for:
<file_name>astropulse_6.04_windows_intelx86__opencl_ati_100.pdb</file_name>
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/results.php?hostid=6770255&offset=0&show_names=0&state=5&appid=
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/result.php?resultid=2607404516

May be caused by your antivirus?
