So how do you search for the unexpected? I understand the basic idea was looking for signals in the H2 noise. is that still the case or have we moved on to other spectra. Please excuse my ignorance, I was away from Physics for over 30 years, though I have tried to read the popular literature. I was a Nuclear Engineer for over 20 years until the field dried up.

I have been running AGV Business Suite for 4 years and running BOINC longer than that. I have never had any problem and I am running Cosmology, Einstein, and SETI. I am using Windows 7, on a HP Pavilion m6-1045dx.

Well, I am running E-trust Firewall, which I believe is the sucessor to the Zone Alarm system or the same thing. It is registered but was free through Road Runner membership. Previously I had a paid Subscription to Ez-Trust Antivirus, but let it lapse when the free subscription became available.
I recently had to reinstall BOINC and the Ez-Trust suite on another computer when my harddrive died. The Boinc that installed was version 5.4.9 which was a newer version than I had been previously running. All BOINC elemets are set as trusted servers with full access and pass lock, yet when Boinc manager attempts to send results to BERKELEY, I get a computional error reported both on the task and in my Berkeley results file.
I am running Windows 98 Plus (a half version between the orginal 98 and 98SE) on a Dell with a 400MHz Celeron Processor and 128M Ram, I am also running AnalogX Cache Booster and Analogiz MaxMem.
Hope this helps as I have had six tasks in the last week that Have failed to report properly.
