  1. Admin Account "Incomplete" Permissions with Task Scheduler


    I have a bizarre problem, and here are some basic facts:

    • Computer: HP laptop, originally purchased with 64-bit Windows 10 Home
    • Current OS: 64-bit Windows 10 Pro - upgraded after the initial purchase upgrade, not a fresh install
    • I am the administrator on the computer, and my account was created prior to upgrading the OS
    • Issue: When is an admin account not a complete admin account?


    For a specific communications software program to operate properly, my computer clock must be very accurate. The app I use to ensure an accurate computer clock time connects to a web-based pool of time servers, compares their time with the computer time, adjusts the computer clock if necessary, and creates a log entry confirming the action. The log entry is only written if the app is able to compare and/or adjust the computer clock.


    The app, of course, requires UAC because it needs to adjust the computer clock. It works properly when I run it manually but, when Task Scheduler runs it automatically on a schedule, it runs but does not work properly even though the task is configured to run the app using my same administrator account and to run with highest privileges. It seems that it cannot work with the computer clock and, as a result, terminates without syncing the time or creating any log entry.


    This app was written by a friend and it functions properly for him on his computer regardless of whether he runs it manually or as a scheduled task. He is the administrator of his computer, and he is using the same OS version that I am. One difference is that he had Windows 10 Pro right off the bat - not an upgrade as in my case. I don't know if that should matter, but it is a difference.

    So my question is "what could possibly cause the difference where I am able to manually run the app successfully but, when Task Scheduler runs it using my account, it fails to complete the required action?"


    Any assistance would be very much appreciated, as I am completely baffled. Thank you.

    :)

  2. Windows 10 Task Scheduler not finding Admin

    Hi Bryan,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community, we appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    I understand the inconvenience that you are unable to perform Task Scheduler on Windows 10, we will help you to resolve this issue.

    Step 1: I suggest you to log out from the standard account and log-in with an Admin account on Windows 10.

    Try to perform Task scheduler from Admin account and check if the issue persists.

    Kindly update the status of this issue, we will be happy to help you.

    No permission to disable a task in Task Scheduler

    I was searching for a solution to my laptop starting by itself after going to sleep mode. I've read a possible solution is disabling "Reboot" task in "UpdateOrchestrator". Unfortunately, when I try to do this I get a message:

    ---------------------------

    Task Scheduler

    ---------------------------

    The user account you are operating under does not have permission to disable this task.

    ---------------------------

    OK

    ---------------------------

    I don't know how to get that permission. I opened Task Scheduler as administrator, also Control Panel\User Accounts\User Accounts\Manage Accounts says there is one user account and it's type is "Administrator".

    I'm on the current version of Windows 10 (the newest Creator's Update or whatever it's called).

  4. Admin Account "Incomplete" Permissions with Task Scheduler

    Unable to run Task Scheduler

    Hello Varun,

    Let's determine the cause of the issue. To get started, I'd like to get the following information:

    • Is this your first time to encounter this issue? If so, did you make any changes to your computer's configuration prior to this?
    • Are you getting any error messages?
    • Can you also please confirm the current build of your Windows 10?

      (Type winver into the Cortana search box, then hit
      Enter
      .)

    Meanwhile, I suggest that you try starting the Task Scheduler through command line. To do so, please follow these steps:

    • Open Command Prompt (Admin).
    • Type this net start task scheduler and hit Enter.

    We're looking forward to your response.
