    I have just today upgraded to XP. hopefully this will not make me wish I had kept 98se like Win, Me. did. Qustion:
    In Scheduled tasks, I have 3 items, "Could not Start" Live Update, PC Health Scheduler and Symantec Net Detect. Any suggestions as to how to get these items up and running? Thanks Dave.

    I've discovered how to set up scheduled tasks in Win.XP BUT it keeps asking me for a pass word to run the task. What password do I use or where can I find\change\create this reguired password? Thanks Dave.

    Money Pit It is the same password you created for administrator privileges, when you installed XP. If you didn't create a password when you installed XP, Leave it blank when prompted and hit OK.

    Start>Help>Index has quite a bit on passwords.

    I don't remember if I entered a password during installation but I'm thinking I didn't. Any way of check\changing it?
    I have " Disk Cleanup" setup but when I right click on it in"Scheduled Tasks" ans select "Run", it won't run. Why can't I manually start and run my scheduled tasks? Thanks Dave.
