We have a thread for computers that are trashing everything they download.

https://www.cpdn.org/cpdnboinc/forum_thread.php?id=7674

I notice that all four of the tasks on this box at the moment are on at least their second attempt and looking at the computers they have already failed on, all are crashing at least half of their tasks. It would be great if there were some way of automagically contacting these people with the tips for maximising the chances of success, ticking <Leave non-gpu tasks in memory while suspended> etc. I suspect that the number of these machines is far greater than that of those who crash absolutely everything so a system of reporting them and someone manually sending the user an email would I am sure involve far too much work even though in the long term it could greatly speed up the average speed at which tasks were completed.
