Vista Scheduler RRS feed

  • Question

  • For the longest time, I had to run backups manually because they would not start as scheduled (Mondays at 9:00 PM).  I then defined a task to display a message and scheduled it to run 5 minutes before the start of the backups (Mondays 8:55 PM).  This too would not start.  Through pure coincidence, I happened to be logged-on today Monday at 10:30 PM and both the test message and the backups started approximately 90 minutes after their scheduled time and 5 minutes apart.  The Scheduler's "clock" seems to be off, how do I fix ?   Running Vista SP2, maintenance is current.  The computer clock is set correctly and with the correct time zone

    Thanks,
    Zach
