    boinc manager on my computer says that it cannot be uninstalled. it shows an error message . it says that boinc.msi file is not found. then when I browsed and selected boinc.msi then it says that it is on a network resource and I cannot uninstall it. When I manually tried to uninstall it it showed the same error. the error message was 1706 no valid source can be found for product boinc. my boinc version is 5.4.11

      Hi HCL PD,

      the solution for your problem is called Windows Installer Cleanup Utility. It\'s also good to keep it if any installed programs refuse to obey your uninstall requests. After the utility has removed BOINC from the Windows Installer Configuration you may have to manually delete the BOINC directory from your computer.

      A FAQ is also available on this...

      If you like BOINC, you may also find CaretCursor to be appealing.
