Go to Control Panel, and in there is the Task Scheduler folder. Go into it, and delete whichever tasks you don't want to run, or if you want to totally disable the Task Scheduler click "Advanced" on the top menu of the window, then click "Stop Using Task Scheduler". That should do it ;)

Happy computing :)

Unless I misunderstand the post, I don't think jerry wants to stop any tasks, I think he wants to know why they aren't doing what they are suppose to.

Don't do defrag from task scheduler for goodness sake! Anything else running can interrupt defrag and stop it from completing.

Start it manually, and before you do use CTRL-ALT-DEL and 'End task' everything except systray and explorer. Defrag for Win 9x is a shit of a thing!

Personally, I don't use the Task Scheduler; but the only thing I can think of that should be run from there is an antivirus program. It's better to get in a habit of running the other things manually once a week or so -- only takes a few minutes when done regularly (except the full Scandisk thing).
