What is ransomware and how do I protect my PC from Petya?
I could really use some help with a possible User/Permission conflict in Scheduled Tasks.
I am using a standalone PC at home. AMD Athlon XP 2400+ Using windows 2000 Professional Service Pack 4 (build 2195)
It was originally part of a network connected to a server at my work.
I have tried to run Spybot search and destroy and Adaware 2007 through Scheduled Task but am getting the same errors STATUS: Could not start
My fear is, whilst tinkering about regarding a previous dll issue, which has now been resolved (through this forum, thanks), that I may have possibly changed some user account info causing a conflict
I have run Belarc Advisor which shows that I have 2 local user accounts??? Is this causing a conflict?
local user accounts last logon
Administrator 16/09/2007 23:25:00 (admin)
Standard 16/09/2007 20:54:56 (admin)
local system accounts
In the Properties of Spybot under Task is a box by "Run As:" which has STANDARD\standard in it
( Pressing Ctrl/Alt/Delete to bring up windows security states "Standard is logged on as STANDARD\standard") is this the same as "Standard",one of the local user accounts shown above?
When I checked the security tab in Properties there are 3 listed?
Administrators (STANDARD\ Administrators)
All have full permissions when I highlight them
I noticed that it is "Administrator" in Local User account (see above) but "Administrators" under the security Tab.
Basically can anyone deduce from above what I need to do to get Scheduled Tasks to run these programs? And do I actually have a user conflict issue, Or am I barking up the wrong tree?
Any help/advice would be appreciated.
unfortunately changing RunAs user to Administrator did not resolve this. It shows the task as Running in Scheduled Task but the application (Spybot search & Destroy) is not.
It has been running since 15:11pm (Monday) and it is now 12:40am!(Tuesday) I think that is long enough, don't you? (LOL)
Any suggestions, anyone?
