The last several WUs I have downloaded have all given this error

I tried resetting the project, but it still happens

Any Thoughts?

TIA for any insights

Sounds like possibly your Anti Virus/Anti Malware programs are getting in the way.
ELIMINATE ALL BOINC PROGRAM AND DATA FOLDERS FROM YOUR REAL-TIME AND MANUAL SCANS.

See this tread for more info.

Thanks

I had already done this to avoid warnings about BitCoin Utopia, and I've recently gotten several Seti Beta WUs completed

Strange that it was just this one executable that got corrupted, tho

It's Baaaaack

After successfully processing several WUs, I'm now getting this again

I've double checked, and yes, the BOINC data directory is still in my AV Excludes

i actually have one WU partially complete, using the "wrong sized" file

Guess it is safe to ignore the warning, then
