Every time I request new tasks for SETI@home and yoyo@home, the downloads fail. When i tried to downlaad the addition files ( link below that i got from another thread) my anti virus (Avast) says its a virus and when i tried to run it, it gives an installer integrity check error.

What can i do to rectify this problem?

You have problems downloading the images. This can be because your ISP recompresses these image files.

To counter this, you can go into your account->url=https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/prefs.php?subset=global]computer preferences[/url] and set Skip image file verification? to Yes (checkmark it).

Save changes with the Update preferences button, open BOINC Manager->Advanced view->Projects tab->highlight Seti@Home->click Update.

Or when using local preferences: open BOINC Manager->Advanced view->Tools->Computing preferences->network usage tab->check Skip image file verification.

I have done all that, and still nothing. I have seen in the logs that there is no usable GPU. Will that be a problem?

Is BOINC running Activity->Based on preferences?

No, that there is no usable GPU has nothing to do with this. At this project, the GPU can be used for calculations, but for that you need a) an Intel, Nvidia or AMD GPU capable of that; b) correct drivers installed on the system.

Yes it is. As I go along reading other threads I check and change and update.

Have you set the "Skip image verification" in the local preferences, or in the web-preferences? If in the latter, did you do so for the correct venue, which in your case is the default location and not home, work or school.

Pre-post edit, I see you use local preferences, so I must ask again, did you check the "Skip image file verification" in there?

In the mean time I have been checking older threads both here and on the BOINC forums about this, it would appear that this is a problem with how BOINC sees the files and protects itself against malignant use of this.

BOINC tries to protect itself against misbehaving proxies that don't signal errors properly but instead send some HTML page to the client. If BOINC receives 5000 bytes or less from the server then BOINC assumes that there is a bad proxy between it and the server and truncates the file to zero bytes (=removes the assumed HTML page.)

This was fixed in a recent Alpha version of BOINC, so can you please install that one for the time being, and see if that fixes it for you. BOINC 7.3.19 for 32bit Windows.

Do know that since this is a development version, that it can have other troubles. Also, you'll have to update it to recommended (7.4) when the time comes.

Great! :-)

Sorry for pressing to check that the image file skipping was set, but there have been enough people who have said they had it set, when in case they didn't, or didn't at the correct venue/place.
