Message 1812130 - Posted: 24 Aug 2016, 11:15:14 UTC

I often get a notification stating there is a new Seti@Home notice but almost always I have already read that supposedly new notice. I regularly delete my browsing history, so perhaps that is a reason. I appreciate that it is only a minor thing but I wonder if there is a way to stop getting these false new notice notifications?

Open BOINC Manager->Options->Other options...->General tab->Notice reminder interval->set to Never->OK.

That will stop the notification bubbles, it will not stop the Notifications tab from showing a number, so as to tell you there are new notices. That still happens after so many moons, but usually when a project has one new news item, BOINC Manager refreshes all older news as new news. Shrug.
