As a lone user, I have never seen the need to use the Windows Task Scheduler, and, as it uses system resources, I want to disable it—not just temporarily, but permanently. I am sick and tired of having to "pause" it, or "Stop Using " it each time I restart Windows. Permanently disabling it however does not seem outwardly possible in Win98SE. It is not in the Windows Start Menu Startup folder, and neither is it in MSconfig. So where is it? and how can I kill the damned thing!? D. O'Hanlon

—Thanks for trying guys, but neither of you seem to have read my message details. I repeat:
There is no "mstask" in my msconfig window, and "disabling" Task Manager only stops it for the current session--it always shows up again after the next restar, and has to be disabled again.
