I was looking at my stats page and I noticed that the program thinks I have 3 different computers. This is not true. I only have one computer. When I attempt to merge the computers, I can\'t find the \"check boxes\" to merge the computers together.

Please respond if you know how to fix this or if this didn\'t make sense at all.

This was described in the post below yours, <a href=\"\"> here.</a>

The reason you can\'t merge the 3, is that the cpu description is different for each, so the server thinks that they are 3 different computers.
Only multiple appearances of a single computer can be merged.

Different versions of BOINC interpreted the information extracted from the cpu in different ways, so, even if the 3 ARE the same physical computer, you can\'t merge them.
