I had a couple of other ideas. I was hoping that there wasn't some sort of an incompatibility issue so I decided to browse the top computers list to see if another host had a similar gpu. It took a while but at least I did find another host with a similar gpu.

Might be a good idea to check the website preferences. On mine I do have Use ATI GPU checked and under Run only the selected plan classes I have everything checked.

Other than that you can try resetting the project or removing the project and then adding it again.

Or do you think suspending primegrid will allow tasks to download?

Wait, so Microsoft isn't the cause of every problem? I want to blame them for my laziness.

I was not aware that Google had an anti-malware package. I'm fine with Windows Defender.

you could try this:

verbose=1
kernels_per_reduction=48
threads=7
lut_size=16
sleep=1
reduce_cpu=0
sieve_size=30

I did try some settings for my setup and the speedup was considerable but there was a jump in heat and running stock was already hot enough for my liking so I'm staying with stock for now.

i ended up going back to windows 8.1 from windows 10 on one of my computers because i wanted to keep using 15.7.1 but windows update would overwrite that with the latest beta driver which would cause a reboot every time i tried turning crossfire off.

if your computer is running 13.1 then the driver should show up as 1.4.1741. but in reality it's showing up as 1.4.1734 which would make that driver earlier than 12.6. so maybe you're having a similar problem to mine where you install 13.1 and later the OS overwrites that with a different driver.

Given the model of video card that you have along with your operating system, I hope you're not stuck. AMD doesn't officially provide support for that card under Windows 10, so all you have is Microsoft's driver that might not be complete. The last driver that AMD put out for that card was catalyst 13.1 and I'm not sure you will have luck getting that to work under Windows 10. 13.1 was made for Windows 8.
