  1. is there a way to turn off annoying BOINC pop-up messages at the bottom of the screen when running BOINC? I can't figure it out -either in the program or online.

    I don't need to be alerted that it needs to connect etc....

    I searched the entire internet for you Tedster.Some people said it was irritating,but nobody even asked how to turn it off,let alone provided an answer.:( You could try the BOINC message boards.

    I would have no idea, but just in case, if the program uses the Messenger service, you could try turning that service off. But it likely doesn't use Messenger.

    I found a soluition off the BOINC website. Apparently there is a bug in the program. You need to go options - options - connections and select "Use my LAN connection" - even if you have broadband on all the time. Don't use "automatically detect my connection settings."
