Due to a problem of my own making I have lost all my work units on my PC.
Boinc won't get any more as Rakesearchs thinks I have 160 WU's in process.
Do I just have to wait until they time out due to deadline or can I
1. re download them or
2. have them removed from my Computer so I can get new WU's

1. That feature does not exist in Boinc. Lost is lost, forever.
2. You can go to the "Projects" tab and "Reset the project". This removes any work units existing on your computer (whether they are running or not). Then you connect the computer to the server. It tells the server that you have discarded everything and you get fresh work units. If it doesn't work, go one step further and remove the project from your list of projects. Then you assign your computer again to the project. To get clean statistics on the website, you have to merge the 2 computers.

Good luck! This is annoying, but not a reason to despair.
