I received the note today, "Message from server: The project has changed its security key. Please remove and add this project." However, the remove button in BOINC Manager is not active. Is this an issue with collatz, or with the manager? Is there a fix, or a workaround? Right now I cannot download any new projects.

If you used an external program to load Collatz you will have to uninstall it the same way, did you use something like BAM to load it perhaps?

I'm reaching the same message to add and remove the Collatz project because of a security key change on my laptop. I am trying to do it in BOINC Manager and it will not let me. What should I do? Thanks!

Do you use BAM or some other Boinc add-on to add Projects? If so you must use it to remove them too.

Was using BamStatsManager under Tools. Removed it and the Remove button lit up under the Collatz project. Removed and added the new security key in less than a minute. Thanks for the info! Much appreciated.
