Task Scheduler Wizard Not Responding

On clicking on my Add Scheduled Task icon, the wizard appears and I press next, then - nothing, the egg-timer spins, and spins...Using the Task Manager it shows that the Wizard is using 100% of the CPU, and shows that it`s not responding, so I have to close it down, why is this?

Thanks.

What version of Windows?

Or which version of Windows

Tis windows XP Home. I`ve done a disc cleanup, defragged twice, and run sfc /scannow. No change.

What happens if you run it from a run command?

IE: start, run and type this %windir%\tasks it will bring up the jobs window and add a schedule.

Thanks spikeychris for this suggestion, will try that tonight, am at my work machine at the moment.

If that fails the run this command %windir%\SchedLgU.Txt and post the results.

Have tried the first item, I get the add scheduled task item, click the icon, get the wizard, click next, spinning eggtimer and 100% CPU usage.

Did the second item and got a long list of dates, most recent ones here as the list is so long. Is the task scheduler doing a task I`ve never set up, the dates actually go back to the 5th February, but to my knowledge I`ve never accessed the Scheduler, I want to now as I wish to do an automatic Defrag every fortnight.

Afraid I?m struggling with the report as my birth date has arrived and Mr Daniels has been visiting, so you could use the following?

click here

Or Windows XP will automatically optimize the disks on boot if required Start/Run/Regedit

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Dfrg\BootOptimizeFunction

In the right pane, modify the existing value called "Enable" and set it to
N.

  Actor One 22:34 30 Oct 03

Thanks spikeychris I`ll try that.

Ps Happy Birthdate regards to Mr.Daniels...;-)
