Several things here:
1) There is a bug in BOINC 4.45 which causes the science app to not restart after being paused for a benchmark, which happens every 5 days.
So I suggest that you upgrade to the latest version.

2) The \"exited with zero status but no \'finished\' file\" message appears now and then, and can usually be ignored.
In this case, you may have had computer instability for a moment, or a software conflict, which has caused a crash.

3) error 113 means, I think, that your net connection was unavailable at the time that BOINC tried to contact the server to send the error messages.
If you have a backup of the BOINC folder from before the crash, now is a good time to copy it back and re-start, before BOINC \'tattle-tales\' to the server.

In relation to 2), it helps if you set your General Preferences of \'Leave application in memory\' to yes.

In relation to 3), if you don\'t have a backup, fix your net connection, and then click Update. This will allow BOINC to upload the error messages, and download a new data set, so that you can start again.

If you decide to upgrade BOINC, exit BOINC then download the new version, and run it. Then you\'ll start again; new version, new data set.
