2.2 Running The Program
You can always see how much time you have to turn in a WU by opening the BOINC manager, going into the "Advanced" view and selecting the "tasks" tab. View the "Report Deadline" column.
Save a WU in progress so you can reinstall the OS.
1. Shut down BOINC
1. Copy the complete BOINC folder from C:\Program Files\BOINC (assuming that you have WCG/BOINC installed in this location) to a thumb drive. (Be sure to copy other important data files on your computer.)
2. Reinstall the OS.
3. Copy the BOINC folder back to C:\Program Files
4. Install the BOINC program. Make sure the BOINC version is the same one that you had on the computer before you "nuked" it.
