The section for those minor projects that are around, such as CAS@home, Yafu, Yoyo@home and also including those that are "non-intensive", such as GoofyxGrid, WUProp, which can both be run in the background.

I keep getting a virus warning every time yo-yo tries to download a crunch xxx file, any ideas?

Its more than likely a false positive, I would let the project know so they can look into it. But I don't think you should be worried

We've frequently got false-positives from various antivirus products at the Climate projects - the most notorious being Sophos claiming that a non-executable swap file was a worm, and another virus product claiming that the project zip files were a 'decompression bomb' (which turned out to be any large zipped file).
I'd recommend emailing that file to your antivirus vendor, and asking them to adjust their signature files to avoid futher false-positives.

Hasn't he fixed that yet?
Not a problem, just your antivirus being cautious.
See this thread
for details. There's also another thread somewhere
with more details.

I say release the hounds :twisted: (Apologies if i am wrong though) :lol: But i do have a hunch..
