Hey,I want to help BURP but my BOINC is acting up. Won't give me any tasks.
Every time I "Update" BOINC tasks it just says communication deferred for 24 Hours!
Help me help other people!

Check the event log, it should give you a reason. From advanced view of BOINC manager, Tools > Event Log.

"Not Accepting from this host"

Try this then...
However, it would be strange if that would be the case. You joined only some days ago and I thought for new members wouldn't it be necessary anymore.

If it also gets the message "Not accepting requests from this host" then you might need to do the Beta-upgrade again, but I'm not sure, since it only should affect your account as a whole - which should include every host you connect to the project.
Besides that, check your own preferences, cache settings etc.
Seems your dual-core PC only has 1 GB RAM, but since the current sessions (including yours) have quite low requirements there should be no problems running them.

If you're talking about the Atom with Windows 7, it looks like you're running a 32-bit version of the operating system. Currently, BURP requires a 64-bit OS.
