One of my "friends" wanted to join in on this so I let them use my account and set it up on their computer with a 0 day queue. They've taken a BNBS2 WU and held onto it for 5 days, as far as I know not even trying to do it. She will not respond to me, so is there any way I can remote disable her boinc or make it log out?

Since her computer is on your account you could put it in another group such as "Work" and then set "don't use Nvidia GPU" and "No" to everything else so she can't download anymore.

I don't think changing your account password will actually log her out of your account unless she closes BOINC.

Why is she on your account anyway???

Because she just wanted to contribute with her 970 and not do any of the work, but apparently that wasn't true, and I don't understand people at all.

It definitely was not a good idea to let someone else use your account.

What I don't understand anyway is when you say "Because she just wanted to contribute with her 970 and not do any of the work" - ???
