Hey Tech People!

How do I keep Task Schedual from starting up? I want to disable the bloody thing. It eats up system resources. Can anybody help?

Thanks.

The easiesy way I have found is go into the registry and remove all entries of Task Scheduler.

Make sure you make a back up of the registry first.

To disable TaskScheduler click on MyComputer>ScheduledTasks. Now click on Advanced>Stop Using Task Scheduler.

Hello.

Sorry it didn't work. However, I didn't edit the registry entries....

I don't feel that confortable with it. Even with Xsetup. So if somebody could tell me exactly which entries to remove?!?

Thank You
JD

If you have Windows Update Notification included in Task Schedular, you must totally kill that first, otherwise Task Scheduler will keep reappearing no matter how hard you try to stop it.

Paul's correct. If you do have "Windows Critical Update Notification" loaded, TaskScheduler will keep turning itself back on at startup even after having selected "Stop Using Task Scheduler".

To get rid of it, do this,

Start>Settings>CP>Add/RemovePrograms. Scroll down and locate "Windows Critical Update Notification" and double left click on it to uninstall it.

Then go back and click on MyComputer>ScheduledTasks. Now click on Advanced>Stop Using Task Scheduler.
