    Task Scheduler - Some tasks did not execute... (XP Home SP1)

    A couple of days ago I turned on "Notify me of missed tasks" in task scheduler. Now I get the "Some tasks did not execute..." message (att) every time I reboot, or come out of standby. There is no "list of missed tasks" and the last log entry is:
    "Some tasks may not have executed at their scheduled times between 8/06/2003 1:55:01 PM and 11/06/2003 7:33:46 AM, either because the Task Scheduler Service was not running, or because the computer was hibernating."

    The problem is that I have turned off the "Notify..." option, and removed all tasks, for every user, from task scheduler. The message remains, and the log is updated regardless. How do I return to the state where task scheduler no longer tells me it did not execute some (non-existent) tasks?

    I have tried various combos of adding tasks, letting them run, turning "Notify..." on/off, etc. All to no avail. MSKB and Google both fail to shed any light on this (that I can see). It does not affect use of the PC, but is getting a tad annoying.

    Do you have Task Scheduler enabled in Services?

    I made a stop by Group Policy because I noticed in the ole System Config Utility that the Windows Installer service is "off" yet my installs go fine--I always thought the Windows installer worked in conjunction with other installers depending upon how the software was written--but going the same direction as cowboydawg but at a slightly different location, have you also checked at these settings in Group Services? "Gpedit.msc" in the run box is one of the several ways here. Local Computer Policy>Computer Config>Adm Templates>Windows Components> Task Scheduler. Not sure why they don't put all of the settings in a category together in one place in the MMC but they don't seem to. A lot of these are "disable to enables", i.e. "enable prohibit new task creation."

    Thanks - looks like it's gone. I toggled it off & on a few times between reboots and everything appears "normal" again. Should have thought of doing it myself, but then again looks like it was one of those "fixes" that shouldn't be needed. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    (smbp - thanks, but us homies miss out on little luxuries like gpedit.msc <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15>)

    I really wish there were a way for Home to access it although someone like you can get a lot of those settings done another way--but some of them may take going to the registry. A lot of the tweakers do some of them. To me there seems to be no good reason to have left features out of Home, except to charge more for Pro--and I hope with Longhorn they will make one version will all the features for all users without trying to charge an extra hundred bucks--probably a Utopian wish the way things seem to be going with no more stand alone IE's in the future.
