Apps / Software :: Task Scheduler Won't Start Various Programs On Startup

Nov 16, 2013

For example it starts SpeedFan without any problem, and with same settings, or even in the same Task, if I add for example other .exe software like FTP server software Gene6 FTP Server it simply doesn't start for any reason and nothing happens and it has to be started manually by mouse-clicking on .exe each time computer is booted up.

On Last Run Result column it says 0x800702E4. And it gives various 0x results for various programs that don't run.

Also simply dragging shortcuts to Startup folder don't work either. But like I said, not all .exe programs, some work and some don't, just like 50/50 I simply don't get it.

I use Comodo Antivirus and ZoneAlarm firewall, but all those programs I need has 100% permissions granted.

HP Envy AiO - Win 8 Task Scheduler Runs All Tasks On Start-up

Dec 21, 2013

I have Win8.1 installed on an HP Envy AiO. I have a little over a dozen tasks set-up in Task Scheduler. Everything was working fine until I attempted to install a Video File Converter from That program installed something called "Auto Updater". And that's when our new problem started. The majority of the tasks in TS are now running every time we boot the machine. Not what we want.

I couldn't find much on-line about the Auto Updater program, and tried to uninstall with no success. I finally went into Safe Mode to install that way. The program is now uninstalled. I also am very careful about malware and viruses, so I ran MWBytes full scan and several AV scans with Avast Internet Security (rootkit, boot, full). All appears to be OK with the PC.

Task Manager - Startup Programs Not Populated At All

Jul 12, 2014

Just found out that when I go to Startup items from Task manager and msconfig, Startup is not populated at all. All the items set to start are working and visible, just no listing in Startup for any. System scan including Dism comes up clean as a whistle and so is malware detection. Haven't checked since newest updates but can's see a reason for them to do only that.

PC Not Waking Up With Task Scheduler

Dec 9, 2013

Why the pc isn't waking when a task is scheduled to wake it? It sleeps, S3, I can wake with the power button, and can WOL, but a task set to wake it is not working. Allow wake timers is enabled in power configuration, and BIOS settings are correct as it woke up when had Win7 installed.

I've set a task manually, and used an alarm program that wakes it, but neither work, what can I check to resolve this?

Task Scheduler Works In XP But Not In Windows 8

Jun 19, 2014

I am able to open a document using task scheduler in my Windows XP machine, but not in my Windows 8.1 machine or my daughters Windows 8 machine. Is this a Windows 8 bug?

I am able to open the document by hand, but when I wait for the time that Task Scheduler has assigned to open the document, nothing happens. On the other hand when I do the same thing in my XP machine it opens correctly at the assigned time.

I have cleaned my computer completely and reloaded the original operating system then upgraded to Windows 8.1 but it didn't do anything to solve the problem.

Windows 8 X64 OS - Unable To Create Task From Scheduler

Jan 6, 2013

Windows 8 x64 OS, now unable to create a basic task from Task Scheduler.

Typed all args, click the Finish button in the last step, an error:

"Transaction support within the specified file system resource manager is not started or was shut down due to an error".

I have fixed it base on the URL below, but not luck. You cannot change the settings for a file backup operation or use Windows Task Scheduler to change the defrag schedule in Windows Vista. How to fix it.

Windows 8.1 - Password Required In Task Scheduler

May 3, 2014

Somehow, a mysterious requirement for a password crops up near the finish line of my abortive attempt to use task scheduler (windows 8.1). I never created one, and cant come up with one that works. Without the PW, task scheduler is useless.

Task Scheduler Not Keeping History After 8.1 Upgrade

Nov 2, 2013

Upgraded from 8 to 8.1 about a 2 weeks ago. Noticed about a week later that my nightly backup stopped running from the time 8.1 went in. Something stuck 2 new lines of code in the .xml for the task and also changed the run-userid. My admin userid got changed to a MS admin userid. I removed the two lines of code and changed the run-userid back to the correct one and now the backup runs OK. Then I noticed that it wasn't keeping task history. Next I noticed that no tasks were keeping history at all! And I'm unable to turn history on. It said it was on, I turned it off, turned it back on again. Still no history.

Task Scheduler - System Cannot Find The File Specified

Jan 4, 2014

I tried using a batch file to run ccleaner at log on. But it always takes forever when it cleans Firefox. So I made a batch file to just delete the Firefox temp folder. And I unchecked Firefox in ccleaner so ccleaner ignores Firefox.

Here's the batch file.

Code: RMDIR 5bngz3ew.default /S /Q

I put it in the task scheduler. When I run it it says it cant find the file specified (0x80070002). I set the task to run with highest privileges. But every time I run it it gives that error. I don't know why its giving an error when it deletes the folder. So it works fine. I just want to know why its producing an error.

Security :: Set Task Scheduler In 8.1 - Win Defender Folder Missing

Mar 23, 2014

I am struggling to set the Task Scheduler in Win 8.1 to set a daily Restore Point and also to schedule Windows Defender to automatically update itself then run a full scan at a specified time daily. When I try to program the Win Defender function, I find that when I select the Win Defender folder from the left pane library, the resulting right pane contains no "Windows Defender Scheduled Scan" folder, so resulting settings seem to have no effect.

There are two other tasks listed in that right pane - one about cache maintenance and the other about verification (whatever that means), how to get Task Scheduler to work. I don't want to have to download another anti-virus program, but looks I'll have to if I can't get this thing to work. Of course, the inability to get a daily Restore Point may be an even bigger problem with this Task Scheduler, but I'm starting with Defender.

Currently running Win 8.1.1 x64 Pro. Task Scheduler stopped recording History on 1/5/2014 - no task history is available after that date for any task.

Enable All Tasks History is active in Task Scheduler (i.e., Disable All Tasks History displays.)

Task Scheduler - Windows Defender And System Restore?

Apr 2, 2014

Having tried unsuccessfully to program Task Scheduler (in 8.1), I found at the above site in Windows 7 forums a shortcut for a script which supposedly simplifies manual creation of a System Restore point. However when I use it the Restore Point created with the script carries the notation "Install" in the list of Restore Points.

Windows 8.1 - Startup Apps Won't Start If Monitor / TV Is Turned Off

Sep 22, 2013

My system os is windows 8.1. I connect to this system remotely regularly. When it is off, I turn it on remotely with WOL and it autologins into windows.

This computer is connected to a LG LED TV through HDMI port.

My issue is, whenever the TV is off, and I turn on the computer (remotely or locally), system boots up fine but the start up apps (those that I have put in Windows startup folder) won't start. As soon as I turn on the TV, windows will start running those start up apps. Needless to say that if the TV is on and I boot into wondows, start up apps start normally with no problem.

Whatever I tried has failed on me. I even tried to turn off windows 8 Fast Startup in power options but it didn't work. I originally had this issue in windows 8. So I installed windows 8.1 hoping that this issue would be gone but it has not. I tried windows server 2012. In server 2012, this issue does not exist and I have no problem with startup apps.

Maintenance :: Deleted Maintenance Tasks In Task Scheduler

Oct 15, 2013

I deleted maintenance tasks in task scheduler (Microsoft>windows>task scheduler) because I didn't want to have automatic maintenance fire up when I'm working, but sadly... some shit got messed up. My computer starts using hdd at 100% if left idle, and then freezes and all kinds of weird crap that I'm almost positive have to do with me deleting maintenance.

which tasks do I need to re-create in task scheduler in order to have auto-maintenance once again. If you could just read to me all the tasks, triggers, and which programs they are running .
