At startup TThrottle should hide itself, maybe not the first time around.

It's all in the registry:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\eFMer\TThrottle64 or HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\eFMer\TThrottle on a 32 bit machine.
Problably on settings, general and floatingdlg can be set on all machines.

You can use BoincTasks to remotely check TThrottle once it's running and allows a BoincTasks connection.

Hello there guys.
First things first. Nice job coding Ttthrotle.
1. Im trying to find a way to run Tthrotle without the need for the user to be logged in.

2. How can I configure the program once in a administrator account, then all other users wont have to config themselves?
I find very anoying that all the users of the machine will have to deal with de Update dialog, and even whorse, to deal with a mistery gray box that just wont go away for no reason.

3. My idea is to run boinc and tthrottle to avoid overheating and excessive noise. For that i would need to install tthrottle as admin, then all other users would run it in the background

4.Theres also the idea of running boinc in big networks ran by domain controllers. Most of the computers would stay in the logon dialog... How could I install Tthrottle so every user would be running boinc and tthrotle?
Windows doesn't allow TThrottle to run as a service, the rights of a program running as a service are rather restricted.
2) You can start TThrottle as administator and go to preference and check "Allow TThrottle to be opened by Admin only"
There shouldn't be a gray box, try removing the check at "Show temperature window" in preference.
3) At the moment TThrottle only runs as user.

Even if they could catch the password in transmission (unlikely), all they could do is change your BOINC settings.  That is not a security risk, only a nuisance risk.
You would have total control, removing projects adding projects.
But who would be interested in doing, that's the question.
Adding a project that could take over you computer could be an issue.

The Boinc client needs access to the local net to communicate with BoincTasks, so make sure BOINC client has all the rights it need on the local network.

Look for: Allow an app or feature through Windows Firewalll

Is this a problem with BT or SETI@Home or Win 10?
At least it's not a BT problem.
The project frequently goes down for maintenance, than the upload tasks wait a while.

You can select all tasks and right click to select retry, that might help. But don't do this too often.

First Boinc isn't safe to acces over the internet, nothing is encrypted.
I personally use teamviewer to access BoincTasks over the Internet.
Another option would be to set up a VPN connection.

An alternative is if you have a Windows computer running on your local net.

I do not think there is any accountability there and ones email can be easily spoofed.
Nothing is perfect and recently someone got past the security questions.

When I right-click on items in the task list, I don't get a context menue anymore. It still works for the project list or message list.
This means I'm not able to remove a task or to stop a task, etc.
You do know there is a taskbar for that. View check toolbar operations.
Did you restart your computer?
Are you able to select tasks?

OK Check the BOINC client log on computer Mary, the connection attempt might show up in the log.
My guess the BOINC client refuses to connect, maybe password or IP related.
When you run the Toolbox on the your pc the one with BoincTasks any errors?

Did you find this:
A basic test is to open the command prompt and enter ping one both computers.
The xx is the IP address of the other computer.
Try to connect with BoincTasks and check the BOINC log of the remote computer for any messages. It might show a reject.

When using the Toolbox do you get any error messages or items that aren't checked with the green OK.

It's a real waste not to use both GPU cards.
Take a look at
Nvidia fan speed or afterburner.

Running the fans a higher speed (automatically) often does wonders to the GPU temperature.
Don't be shy to run the GPU hot they are designed that way.

Isn't it easier to set the Project to one CPU task, in the project website setting
And limit the number of SETI tasks that run at the same time in the project settings.

Probably better:
Or go to Extra -> BOINC Preference set processors to e.g 80% disabling at least one thread. This will cool the CPU and gives other threads more time.

Make sure not to load the CPU up to 100% to leave room for the GPU thread to run at max speed.

There is not enough memory to run the task.

Check BOINC Settings -> Disk Use at most xx% When computer is in use.

Check the Yoyo project forum, some suggest setting this to 97% or abort a task.
You might want to run too many yoyo tasks at the same time.

I had all GPU options ticked on the Collatz Project preferences and the CPU option was unchecked.
This is a project BOINC client thing.
What you might be able to do is set a venue (in the project website setting) so that certain computers are handled differently on the project side.
Next add the computers to a specific venue, like work or home.
