Microsoft Office feature found in Microsoft Office 2002 (XP), Office 2003, and later versions that enables users to have quick access to common features, information, and commands. By default the Microsoft task pane opens on the right hand side of the window. Users who need access to the task pane and are running a compatible version of Microsoft Office can quickly get to the task pane by using the keyboard shortcut CTRL + F1 or by clicking View and then Task Pane.

Thanks.

Vista Home....Automatic restore points are not being saved....I can manually enter them and they show up on the drop down table....I have both drives checked off to allow automatically creating restore...


Hi g502,

Here are some helpful tips that you may use on how to Change the Automatic System Restore Point Settings in Vista Task Scheduler.

By default System Restore is scheduled to create a restore point at 12 AM every day (Daily trigger) and at every system startup (At startup trigger) in Task Scheduler if any system changes were made from the last time it checked. This will show you how to change these schedule settings, or disable one or both triggers.

Warning:
System Restore will need to be turned on for this scheduled task to be able to run.

1. Open the Start Menu.

A) In the white line (Start Search) area, type taskschd.msc and press Enter.

B) Go to step 3.

OR

2. Open the Control Panel (Classic view).

A) Click on the Administrative Tools Icon.

B) Click on Task Scheduler.

3. Click on Continue in the UAC Prompt.

4. In the left pane click on the triangle next to Task Scheduler Library, Microsoft, and Windows to expand the folder tree. (See screenshot below step 5)

5. Click on the SystemRestore folder.

A) Choose a option or options below to do.

OPTION ONE

To Disable or Enable this Task Completely

6. To Disable this Task Completely -
NOTE: This will disable both the Daily (OPTION TWO) and At startup (OPTION THREE) triggers regardless of how they are set individually. You will not have anymore automatic restore points created with this task disabled. You can still manually create a restore point though. For how, see: How to Create a System Restore Point in Vista

A) In the middle pane, right click on the SR task and click on Disable. (See screenshot below step 5)

B) Go to step 22.

7. To Enable this Task Completely -
NOTE: Check to make sure that each Daily (step 12 in OPTION TWO) and At startup (step 17 in OPTION THREE) trigger is also set as Enabled.

A) In the middle pane, right click on the SR task and click on Enable. (See screenshot below step 5)

B) Continue to OPTION TWO.

OPTION TWO

To Change Only the Daily Trigger Settings

NOTE: You will need to have the task enabled in step 7 to use this trigger. This is the trigger that creates a restore point at 12 AM every day by default. If you do not want to change these settings, then continue to OPTION THREE.

reyjoshua07_3.png

11. To Disable the Daily Trigger -
NOTE: This is if you only wanted to have restore points create with the At startup (OPTION THREE) trigger instead.

A) Uncheck the Enabled box and click on OK. (See screenshot below step 12)

B) Continue to OPTION THREE.

12. To Enable the Daily Trigger -

A) Check the Enabled box. (See screenshot below)

B) Continue to OPTION THREE.

17. To Enable the At startup Trigger -

A) Check the Enabled box. (See screenshot below)

D) Click on OK.

E) Continue to OPTION FOUR.

OPTION FOUR

To Change the Conditions for the Task

20. In the middle pane, right click on the SR task and click Properties. (See screenshot below step 5)
NOTE: You can also just click on the History tab in the bottom half of the middle pane instead.

A) Click on the History tab. (See screenshot below)

Enable Task Manager



Some Malware and Trojan often disable access to Windows Task Manager. Fortunately, a few quick Registry edits are usually all that are needed to regain control.

Here's how to do it:
  • Click Start
  • Click Run
  • Type REGEDIT
  • Click OK and The Registry Editor will now open
  • Browse to the following key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\system
  • In the right pane, look for the value: DisableTaskMgr
  • Right click DisableTaskMgr and select Delete. (When prompted with "Are you sure you want to delete this value", select Yes.
  • Now browse to the following key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\system
  • In the right pane, look for the value: DisableTaskMgr
  • Right click DisableTaskMgr and select Delete. (When prompted with "Are you sure you want to delete this value", select Yes.
  • Close the Registry by choosing File | Exit
  • Restart your computer
You should now be able to access Task Manager. If not, reboot into Safe Mode and repeat the steps outlined above.

Laptop hanging off


If your laptop is hanging while you are working, press this combination keys:
Ctrl Alt Del.
If you are using windows XP, it should automatically take you to task manager.
But if you are using windows vista or windows 7, it would show you options, of which you are to select 'task manager'.
End the tasks the are not responding by right clickin it and selecting 'end task'.
If that task still refuses to end, still in the task master pane, go to 'processes'.
Select the processs running the nonresponsive task. Eg, if internet explorer is the non responsive task, the process would be 'explorer.exe'.
End that process.

If it stil doesnt work, then select 'end all processes', and restart the system.
Hope this was helpful?

Shut off my Dell last night. When to sign in in the morning and when I did the Ctrl, Alt, Delete - nothing happened. is it shot or can i fix it ej


possible fixes:
1) run antispyware and antivirus
2) In XP PRO then try turning the Task Manager Disable facility on and then off again. It should be set to off or 'not configured'.

For turning Task manager On/Off

Start, Run, type gpedit.msc,OK

In left hand pane Double click Admin Options.
Double click System,
Click Ctrl, Alt, Delete.

Then in right hand pane double click Ctrl, Alt, Del. This opens up 'Task Manager Disable/Enable' facility..

Setting on radio buttons should be either disabled or 'not configured' If so select enable (this turns Task Manager Off), Apply, OK.

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.
