After a crash caused, I suspect, by an Nvidia graphics driver, CPDN and another project were missing from the Project tab in Boinc Manager, even though their files are still present in the BOINC Program Data folder.

Error messages in the BM log read:
3/16/2015 6:50:20 PM | | [error] Couldn't parse account file account_climateprediction.net.xml
3/16/2015 6:50:20 PM | | [error] Couldn't parse account file account_www.gpugrid.net.xml
3/16/2015 6:50:20 PM | | [error] Couldn't parse statistics_climateprediction.net.xml
3/16/2015 6:50:20 PM | | [error] Couldn't parse statistics_www.gpugrid.net.xml

Those referenced XML files are present, but completely empty.

What can I do to recover, and what will the consequences be - will I lose my ID or statistics?

not sure how it works on other projects but assuming you still have your id details for CPDN all you will lose stats wise is credit for work done since last trickle up on each task running so very little in the grand scheme of things.

Rather than re-attach to the project, which might cause multiple host instances, just try stopping BOINC, closing it then restarting it. You should not need to reboot but as it may be a driver issue then perhaps a reboot will sort everything out.

Thank you, Gents - I tried Thyme's route and it worked perfectly!
