Re-enabling task scheduler in windows me

  big_papa_boogaloo 12:07 18 Sep 2004

i need some help. i disabled task scheduler completely and at the time, i didn't realised that it needs to bee running for system restore to automatically create checkpoints. i am using windows me and have had no help from the support section of microsoft.
is there a way to re-enable task scheduler or will i have to re-install windows?

also if i were to reinstall windows, where can i buy windows xp home/pro cheaply and not an oem disk, the retail version of it

To re-enable task scheduler.

Control Panel
Performance and Maintenance
Administrative tools
Scroll down to Task Scheduler and right click
and click on start.

I hope this is all you need.

Sorry the lay out there wasn't quite how I typed it.

Control Panel, Performance and Maintenance, Administrative tools, Services, Scroll down to Task Scheduler and right click. Then click on start.

thanks for the reply. but i cannot follow the steps as i do not have XP, i have Windows ME. is there somewhere in control panel where i can restart task scheduler?

Yeah sorry about that, I saw your last bit and XP stuck in my head.

I do not have ME but I think you will have to reinstall it from Internet Explorer.

Try add control panel,remove programs, select IE, I think Task Scheduler is there in 'add components'.

This message will bring this back to the top of the forum so maybe someone else will know better.

control panel, add remove programs :)
