Account settings->tasks, shows I have 22 units in progress... but I don't! I have tried updating and also reset project to see if it will update everything, but no luck! didn't want the whole system on pause because I have got 22 imaginary work units! How do I get those work units or cancel them from the server?

Can't look at your tasks if that is true, you have hidden your hosts, but I guess it's not necessary anyway.
This "phenomenon" is called ghost units. Can happen from time to time if something did happen between host and server during the connection.
Don't worry about it, after reaching the deadline the work units will be redistributed anyway.

To be honest its fairly obvious what machine is mine! I may just go public!

The whole project completed before deadline, it just seemed odd that there was 22 units that I had to do but I didn't have them, when I clicked to view these WU the other 3 folders had all completed them and had credit so I have a feeling its when I adjusted my cores and it cancelled project to then downloaded... witch is annoying... all for the sake of 2 cores!
