After you install the Task Scheduler component, scheduled tasks may appear in the Scheduled Tasks folder.

CAUSE

When the Task Scheduler component is installed, tasks that you previously scheduled in System Agent (a component included with Microsoft Plus! for Windows 95) are copied to the Scheduled Tasks folder, even if System Agent is disabled.

  2. Right-click the task you want to disable, and then click Properties on the menu that appears.
  3. On the Task tab, click the "Enabled (scheduled task runs at specified time)" check box to clear it, and then click OK.
  4. On the File menu, click Close.

To remove a task from the Scheduled Tasks folder, follow these steps:

  1. Click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click Scheduled Tasks.
  2. Right-click the task you want to remove, click Delete on the menu that appears, and then click Yes.
