My BOINC client shows I am running a task, but zero work has been performed. I don't think I have a virtualbox installed.

How do I go about fixing this?

Thanks

A virtual machine is not required to run tasks for this project.

However, what do you mean by "zero work has been performed"? If you mean to say that you haven't been awarded any credit, that might be because the project's credit script hasn't run in the last couple of weeks. It's supposed to be run once a week, but that often doesn't happen. You can check the Credit Status thread for more information on that.

The "Work done" column on the Projects tab of the BOINC manager refers to how much credit you have been awarded by the project. Since the two tasks you have were sent only two days ago, no credit for the computing power performed on those tasks has been awarded because the credit script hasn't run for over two weeks (see the Credit Status thread I referred to earlier for more details).

however, if you look at the tasks for your computer, you will see that one has returned a trickle which is listed on the task web page showing that things are working as they should.
