    I keep getting alerts from windows that my PC is low on memory. It lists the culprit as an Einstein work unit.
    Anyone else getting this?
    It's annoying because if it happens when I'm not there it results in a lot of 'computational errors'.

    Edit: Should have said the rig has 8Gb of DDR3.

    Looking at the logs for the 750Ti jobs it is saying it is only using 380Mb of your GPU's 2048Mb so assume it is your system's memory that is running low.

    What else is running and what does Task Manager say you have used/free when it happens ?

    8Gb for Einstein is plenty, so either something else is using it or Windows 10 is leaking somewhere !

    I'll check that next time it happens.
    Strange this is it could run SETI@home for weeks without issue. Only happens with Einstein.

    There's nothing else running. It's a PC I built solely for BOINC.
