    How to disable/delete scheduled tasks automatically when rebooting?


    I have several scheduled tasks from an app that keep reappearing in task scheduler with each reboot. If I disable them or even delete them they just reappear each time I reboot my PC. If I disable them they stay disabled until the next reboot.

    Is it possible to set up a batch file or script that I can drop in my startup folder that would disable or delete those scheduled tasks at each reboot, so I don't have to manually do it after each reboot?

    I'm not good with creating batch files or scripts though. Is there anything out there that can help with this?

    :)

    Hey rivre,
    Some apps/programs running at startup re-enable/re-create their task scheduler entries. If you do NOT need/want the app/program running at startup ... try the following ...

    1. Task Manager > Startup Tab ... if the app/program is listed, right click and disable it.
    2. Windows Services ... if the app/program is listed, right click > properties and set the startup type to manual.
    3. Task Scheduler ... Double check that it's task entries are disabled.

    Reboot Scheduled Task

    Hi,

    If you want to delete or disable an automatic task and you're unable to do it even if you're using an administrator account, it possible that there is an issue with your user account. Just to clarify, were you the one who created the automatic reboot in
    Task Scheduler?

    We recommend that you create a new administrator account to see if you'll
    be able to delete or disable the automatic reboot task in task scheduler while using the new user profile.

    Keep us posted.
