Windows task scheduler and Active Directory

I run about 50 tasks through the task scheduler every morning on a dedicated machine. We were recently migrated to an Active Directory and now, I have intermittent problems with the tasks running especially if they take down our Outlook email for maintanance. Sometimes all the tasks will run; sometimes none will run; sometimes half will run and the other half won't. When I run them manually, I get a message that the ''Service has been stopped, do I want to restart.'' Why would the service be stopped when I didn't stop it. Before we were on this Active Directory, the tasks ran without fail.
I have also tried creating a local PC profile to run the tasks from, but the tasks will only run on my AD profile.

How to create a daily enhanced Disk Cleanup task in Windows 7


So you want your Windows 7 Operating System to perform a daily enhanced Disk Cleanup? Well, so do I. So lets get this party started.

Step 1. Click on Start and then click Control Panel.

Step 2. In Control Panel change the View to Small Icons.

Step 3. Now click on Administrative Tools.

Step 4. Now double-click on Task Scheduler.

Step 5. On the right hand side of the Task Scheduler window, click on Create Task.

Step 6. In the Name field, you can type "I love crickets", but to make our task easier to find and manage, I would suggest you label it for what it is, ie., Daily Enhanced Disk Cleanup.

Step 7. In the Security Options area, you are asked to use the default account, which is the account you are currently logged in with. If your account is not an Administrator account you will not be able to create this task. Also, if your account does not have a password, you will not be able to run this account.

Step 8. We want to run this task while we are not actively using this machine, so let's select the "Run whether user is logged on or not" radio button.

Step 9. Leave the "Do not store password" checkbox unchecked.

Step 10. Select the "Run with highest priveledges" checkbox.

Step 11. Leave the Hidden box unchecked as well. We wouldn't want to make it harder for us to find the task if we have to edit it.

Step 12. Click on the Triggers tab.

Step 13. Click the New button.

Step 14. For Begin the task. select "On a Schedule".

Step 15. Select Daily to Recur every 1 days.

Step 16. Change the Start time to 2:00 AM

Step 17. Now check the Enabled checkbox then hit OK.

Step 18. Click on the Actions Tab.

Step 19. Click the New button.

Step 20. In the action dropdown menu, select "Start a program".

Step 21. In Program/script, type C:\Windows\System32\cleanmgr.exe

Step 22. For Add Arguments, type in /sagerun:1
(Please note: To utilize the /sagerun:1 argument, you must follow the steps outlined in my previous article located here.)

Step 23. Hit OK.

Step 24. Click on the Conditions tab.

Step 25. Select the "Wake this computer to run this task" checkbox.

Step 26. Hit OK to close the Create Task UI. You will be prompted for your password or the password you used to create the task.

Step 27. Now test your task.

Step 28. In the task Scheduler UI, click in Task Scheduler Library in the top left hand corner.

Step 29. Right-click on the task you just created and hit run. Your task should run silently in the background. After a few moments, you can click on the History tab and check the status of the task as it stands right now. You will either see running or completed successfully.

Though this task was built using Windows 7, the same steps apply to Windows Vista.

Speed up your browsing of Windows 2000 & XP machines.


Here's a great tip to speed up your browsing of Windows XP machines. Its actually a fix to a bug installed as default in Windows 2000 that scans shared files for Scheduled Tasks. And it turns out that you can experience a delay as long as 30 seconds when you try to view shared files across a network because Windows 2000 is using the extra time to search the remote computer for any Scheduled Tasks. Note that though the fix is originally intended for only those affected, Windows 2000 users will experience that the actual browsing speed of both the Internet & Windows Explorers improve significantly after applying it since it doesn't search for Scheduled Tasks anymore. Here's how :

Open up the Registry and go to :

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows/Current Version/Explorer/RemoteComputer/NameSpace

Under that branch, select the key :

{D6277990-4C6A-11CF-8D87-00AA0060F5BF}

And delete it.

This is key that instructs Windows to search for Scheduled Tasks. If you like you may want to export the exact branch so that you can restore the key if necessary.

This fix is so effective that it doesn't require a reboot and you can almost immediately determine yourself how much it speeds up your browsing processes.

Thanks

Have a great day.

Windows Vista Many Taskeng.exe processes


1. Go to the start menu.
2. Type task scheduler and press enter.
3. Press continue on the UAC popup.
4. In the left pane of task scheduler, underneath Task Scheduler Local, right-click on Task Scheduler Library.
5. In the View submenu, make sure the Show Hidden Tasks option is checked.
6. Widen the Name column in the center pane. The hidden task that is likely at fault has a name that starts with User_Feed_Synchronization, followed by a dash and a bunch of digits inside a curly brace.
7. Select that task in the middle pane by clicking on its name.
8. To verify that this scheduled task is creating all those taskeng.exe processes, select the History tab in the middle pane near the middle of the screen. If you expand out the Level and Date and Time Columns, you should see a bunch of errors and date and times that are 5 minutes apart. If that's the case, then this task is the problem.
9. On the rightmost pane, select Disable.
10. There may be more than one scheduled task like this, so you'd need to disable any or all that were causing problems.
