It seems that since three days most of my tasks have the staus abandonned. It's true that I have abandonned 3 astropulse tasks due to the fact they were restarting after power failures (common here in Burundi - Africa). But not the other ones. A switch somwhere ?
Can anyone help ?

Sadly "mass abandonings" happen from time to time.
There is very little that can be done stop them if they are rare for you.

Usually happens from bad Internet connection (connection that 'hangs' from time to time)
(or if you manually remove/add project)

Packets from your computer come out of order to SETI@home server which the server interprets as cheating.

You have 148 'Abandoned' tasks

There is no point to run those tasks if they are still in your computer - the results will not be accepted by the server and you will not get credit.
