I have "Scheduled Tasks" set up to run Norton antivirus scan, one button check up on a weekly basis but they have recently failed to start. I have checked all properties and they seem to be set OK but the sheduled task window just reports staus as "could not start". Any help to restore this will be appreciated.
JaßîsFaß Thanks for the suggestions. It seems that scheduled tasks will only run if the user account is passworded. I have now added a password and it seems to be working OK and the problem is solved. The strange thing is I didn't have a password on my user account previosly and scheduled tasks was working OK at one time but I don't know when it stopped working. However, I suspect that it is linked to an unsuccesful attemp to upgrade to SP2, after which my computer would not start in any mode until I restored the system. This did not seem to completely undo all of the changes which SP2 must have made as I have several other recently appeared gremlins which I am still trying to resolve. Thanks again for your help on this one
