Just noticed that my Task Scheduler service won't start. If I try to "run" a scheduled task, I get error messages that end with "Error 5". See screenshots attached (three pages). My PC is XP SP3 32-bit, kept updated with the POS hack discussed elsewhere on this very good forum. There's a complicated suggestion at http://www.realgeek.com/forums/task-scheduler-service-access-is-denied-334006.html , but the steps aren't well described. Any simpler ideas? (I already turned the service off and on - no help.) Could anyone translate that realgeek series of steps for me? EDIT - I just ran cacls for tasks and it seems to show FULL CONTROL for EVERYONE. That's at the end of the screenshot attachment. But is that good enough? Thanks. Screenshots when try to run scheduled task.doc
hello guys i have aero everything works fine just 1 problem it does not autostart on reboot why.. the Status stays at Queued how come in Task Scheduler any fix for this cause i have to go to task scheduler to run the aero everytime..
I keep discovering broken processes in the Windows 8.1 task scheduler. Besides these two the latest one I found is in the "Windows Backup" task folder, using the command %systemroot%\System32\sdclt.exeTo find out if you have this issue, launch Windows Task Manager and see if you have several instances of sdclt.exe that cannot be terminated. This is apparently a known issue with Windows 8.1 that some users have attributed to the Intel Proset network drivers. But my PC had the issue even though my motherboard does not have the Intel Proset NIC. To fix sdclt.exe from sapping my memory, I disabled it: Open Windows Task Scheduler, drill down to the Windows Backup task folder, right click on ConfigNotification in the Task Window, and select "disable". I also disabled the associated Windows Service: "Block Level Backup Engine Service" at: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\wbengine and set the "start" parameter to "4" to shut it off. Taking these steps will interfere with Windows backup. So I would not recommend it for those who rely on Windows restore functions or whose PC's aren't afflicted by multiple instances of sdclt.exe. But for those of you using a third party backup solution (as I do) and who have the sdclt.exe problem, I can report that my system has more free memory and is a lot more stable after disabling the process.
