Hello I was just wondering if there is a way to let other users on my computer( my girlfriend when I am away) to control Boinc when I installed it I chose not to let other users control it and would now like to change that. Thanks.

Uninstall BOINC, then reinstall it, but this time in the installer do check the "Let everyone on the computer control BOINC". That way the installer will set all permissions correctly on the BOINC directories and files.
