Possible Trojan. Bonic

But a pc lasts in my house about 4 years.. I think we both know the answer to that question. #7 Robor, Mar 29, 2007 Crazee Elite Member Joined: Nov 20, 2001 Messages: 5,736 Likes Received: 0 [email protected] is a I realize I can set my preferences to put a timer on how frequently BOINC writes to disk and reduce it's use. I will be interested to see how these tasks and their files are treated by the AVs of other Seti members who've downloaded the same task type. news

I've operated most of my PCs (at any point in time I had 6 on average) mostly Unix (Linux/FreeBSD) 24/7 since 1990 (very active harddisk, but not at 100% CPU utilisation). Is there any way they can BLOCK these applications from running, and "protect" their networks and systems? ____________ If having a DC project with BOINC is of interest to you, with Stay logged in Search titles only Posted by Member: Separate names with a comma.

Running as a service, under the authority of a restricted or special use user ID (i.e. "in a sandbox") is a step towards addressing my concern. Or just the end of it's usefulness due to the bigger better faster more effect of time? But, otherwise, you can control the hours of the day and/or the bandwidth BOINC will consume in the General Preferences.

Overheating: Same friend also mentioned that many standard PCs have undersized heatsinks, and will tend to overheat if CPU is kept 100% busy the way these DC projects tend to do. I think it just controls the access to the project files. I found this in the wiki but it doesn't explain how to protect your data. Basically my experience has been that if it runs OK under load for a couple of weeks (memtest86, prime95 etc), they'll last at least 5yr.

It would seem that we could use this under utilized resource by corporately participating in a non-profit "folding" project, such as the "World Community Grid" hosted by IBM.

As mentioned before, systems with poor case cooling (more common than one would think, and includes many name brand systems) puts the cooling of all the other components at a disadvantage. Often IT staff block any DC projects without further inspection because of it. If it's really a problem then the user can set up a processing schedule for the summer so that the computer only processes data when it's cool (eg, at night, or More about the author This includes disks in home computers, due to the fundamental nature of the machanics.

If that's right, then the incremental cost, 24/7/365 is about $42 per year (at 8 cents per Kwh). Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the 7DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. You can often just feel the tiny bit of lag, or running a benchmark such as Aquamark3 (go ahead & try it) can show a noticeable cpu performance drop at 100%

Honestly, I don't know enough about all that's been going on, so I'll just keep my mouth shut.

It's difficult to tell whether it's identified 5 different tasks or 5 files from the same task. The vulnerabilities are not the BOINC connections to the internet per se. Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. A server disk would be restrained by the same fundamental mechanical limitations, and flash-memory (eg USB-sticks) are only capable of a finite number of writes - besides the fact that they're

Keeps talking about exposures and risks and how you might not follow all of their suggestions and create an exposure. Apparently other projects have. I've been thinking for my own machines, running BOINC on a CF card (2gb). The only way would be to hijack a BOINC project's Website and still the bad guys won't be able to run anything on your PC, since executables are digitally signed.

For starters... When looking specifically at the "World Community Grid" project it appears they are moving over to the BOINC client, but their current client seems to have some undesirable characteristics (here's a I guess that also in part answers PC longevity. My point being that machines should be able to run at 100% capacity 100% of the time without problems (besides general maintainence, such as removing dust).

No, create an account now. Of course in this case it is both a change in temps as well as a stop/start.
