I recently reinstalled BOINC on my PC and logged into my old account to resume; not getting any tasks. Downloaded it to my phone (Android), too; that started pulling tasks immediately. What gives? I'm running Windows 10.

Well it looks like you downloaded 23 tasks at 05:10 UTC today and are successfully processing them. One has validated and 6 are pending.

So it looks OK from here.

The only PC showing on your profile is one that has windows 8.1 Is that the same machine??? Because you said it was a Windows 10 machine.

I figured it out, ultimately; I run MalwareBytes as well, and it was blocking inbound from BOINC. I just pointed an exception; all is well. Thank you both.

Im having similar issues. I dont know anything about computers but im running windows 10 just downloaded and installed BOINC Manager added Seti@home to the projects and its saying "No work available to process" it does run tasks with other projects that require RAM i checked. Not sure whats going on. im running the latest version and running it as an administrator. Nothing seems to work.

...as usual posting an "I can't get any work" post did the trick.
