If anyone has crunched any PPS LLRs OR sieves since the sudden large increase in run times, it has probably screwed with Boincs WU estimation numbers. That's a likely reason the high initial long estimation on Primegrid WUs now. You can always reset the Duration Correction Factor (DCF) to 1.000000 in the client_state.xml file located in your C:\ProgramData\BOINC folder for Vista & Win 7 using ONLY notepad. It's in the first group of data at the beginning of the Primegid section for those who don't already know. You need to stop BOINC first and restart afterwards.


Soon to be a *

I even hat to reduce the DCF to 0.410231 (1/4 of original) to get a nearly exact " Time left" information.

Thanks for your suggest, but this seemed not to be the problem cause i had already the newest update of the manager 6.6.20 / 2.8.0 . As i eliminated all projects which needed the AMD Accelerated Parallel Processing (APP) drivers, till now it sems to work out fine.

Thanks Dentalix

Well i also got a problem on my Woodall wu´s. Calculation time done encreases, to do working time encreases as well, but percents of work done stucks. I get download and calculating errors I´ve seen this problem first time. I have several other Projects and they are working fine. So i don´t see the problem on my side.
