    Exclamation Office Computer suddenly blocking WUProp WU's

    Symantec must have updated definitions over night and now I am not able to get a WUProp WU to function. It boots it instantly, saying reputation level is bad and no giving me any option to allow the file to work.

    Anyone have any suggestions to get around this? It would be a massive hit to my WUProp hours if I cannot get it working on this machine.

    Can you exclude the BOINC folder from your AV?

    I don't have that option sadly. It booted some Rosetta files too, but all other projects seem to be crunching along okay. It just really stinks as this machine is my only machine with more than 4 cores (8 cores), and has a strong-ish GPU, so it is a major portion of my WUProp hours.

    Only way around it was force quit it.

    Well the force quit worked, until the incredibly inept IT girl, who has to google everything, made me turn it back on. So I am down a machine for wuprop.

    I didn't kill squat! Ha. Only thing that got killed was my main source for WUprop hours and source for WUprop credit.
