I had to uninstall BOINC. No fewer than FOUR threads were using 200,000 K of RAM on my system! What is the MATTER with you.

Let me know when you get your act together and I'll be back. Let a lot of us know, because that was true when I last looked into BOINC 18 years ago, and I won't be coming here every day to see if you got your act together yet!

Yours,
Dora Smith

That is how you get someone to do something for you.

200,000K of ram would be 200 Megabytes. 18 years ago, that was a lot of RAM and many systems had either 128 or 256MB of RAM. So I highly doubt that was the case back then. Why is it an issue 18 years later, or are you still using the same computer from 18 years ago? By the way, Rosetta@Home is not BOINC. Rosetta@Home is part of the BOINC ecosystem, but BOINC is not Rosetta@Home.

If 200MB is too much for your system, then you will need to find a different distributed computing project to put your computing resources too.

Dora, your machine shows that it has 3,575,000K of memory. 200,000K is less than 6% of that.
