I was looking to see why I had not collected any points for tasks completed and I noticed that none of them validated. I'm finding it strange that none are validating. Is there something wrong on my end that is causing this to happen?

May your tasks never complete. What's the runtime of ATLAS tasks on your machine?

PMFJI,

I have the same problem.
My tasks are between 672.22 sec and 876.47 sec...

Same thing here: my atlas@home tasks show 100.000% progress, remaining time is 00:00:00, status is 'running' yet the tasks never end and elapsed time keeps rising until I suspend and/or abort the tasks losing all the work done.
TWIW this is happening on a 64 bit HP laptop running fully updated/patched Win7 Home Premium with 6GB memory.
'About info': Boinc Manager is 7.6.9, VirtualBox is 4.3.12 (latest available from Boinc but not from Oracle)
Any ideas?
TIA
John

My problems were quite different: my tasks were completed by I wasn't scoring. Useless work, for say.

So, after try lots of different versions of VM with extension packs, try do the work only when I was sure that my internet connection was pretty good, try to disable firewall and everything... This all for about 4/5 days trying... I have to say, I quit.

I don't know what is happening, I try every single option that I saw at internet forums and I was really interested in compute ATLAS tasks, but I am giving up.

I seem to be suffering the same problems as many. Task taking forever to run and when tasks do complete they dont validate. I'm really interested in helping out ATLAS but without answers to these problems will be removing it and giving my spare processing time to someone else
