I keep getting download errors. The error is a checsum failure for the file "new_banner.jpg". This of course causes the WU to fail. Any ideas?

Also so far all the WUs I have completed have failed to be awarded credit. Around 80 hours of crunching wasted. While I know this is a beta project and the credit does not matter, I would hope this all gets fixed before you go live.

I have tried resetting the project it did not help. I tried detachng and reattaching, also no joy.

At the bottom of your account General preferences page you will find

Skip image file verification? no
Check this ONLY if your Internet provider modifies image files (UMTS does this, for example).
Skipping verification reduces the security of BOINC.

You will need to set it to YES.
Don't forget to do a project update in the Boinc manager for it to take effect.

Questions? Answers are in the BOINC Wiki.
