    Recently, I cannot add or delete any scheduled tasks. The "Add Scheduled Task" wizard is missing in the CONTROL PANEL - SCHEDULED TASKS
    folder. I can change the properties of existing tasks, but cannot delete them: the DELETE menu item is grayed out.

    I am logged in as administrator. I have previously entered scheduled tasks and all of them are running as scheduled. All the scheduled tasks are owned by administrator. The only changes in the schedule that I can make are from the Windows Backup program, which has its own schedule that automatically changes the Scheduled Tasks entries for backup.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    This was caused by a Local Computer Policy....not sure how it got disabled, but it was easy to enable.
