This is caused by something blocking BOINC from starting up the science application. Always check that you allowed BOINC through your firewall and exclude both the BOINC and BOINC Data directories from actively being scanned by your anti virus and anti spyware product(s).

Put BOINC (boinc.exe and boincmgr.exe) in the trusted zone of your firewall and only scan the directory or directories by hand with your anti-virus and other anti-malware software, after you closed down or suspended BOINC.
