Hello everyone. I would first like to apologize if this question is in the wrong category. I have no idea where to place my question so I just placed it where he did http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-GB/winservergen/thread/36fccd4a-a699-4913-9afa-c583383bc56a
I have a problem with Task Scheduler. I made a task and I get an error message when I start Task Scheduler saying
An error has occurred for task "task name" application. Error message: The specified account name is not valid.
I tried looking for that task, but I can't find it. I think it's because I checked the "hidden" box when I made that task. I want to delete that task. Can anyone help me?

We can select Show Hidden Tasks to view hidden tasks.
General Task Properties
Also, we can use Schtasks command-line utility to manage our tasks.
Hope this helps.

Sunday, January 13, 2013 7:06 PMHello Jeremy, Thank you for helping me out. I do have the show hidden tasks enabled in Task Manager but I still can't seem to find the task I created. I try to use the Schtask command-line utility, but when I open it the Command Prompt appears and then it closes by itself. I would like to just delete the task that I made, but I can't because it closes by itself. How do I use Schtask.exe?
