    scheduled tasks get disabled

    Task Scheduler History keeps getting disabled for my tasks

    i also found the listed this issue listed.

    i try to update my command and could not.

    i found a recommendation to enable . here -->

    "Step 1: Open an elevated Task Scheduler (ie. right-click on the Task Scheduler icon and choose Run as administrator)

    Step 2: In the Actions pane (right
    pane, not the actions tab),
    click Enable All Tasks History"

    How can I enable the Windows Server Task Scheduler History recording?

    not sure if it is persistent.

  3. No permission to disable a task in Task Scheduler

    You keep talking about a "folder". Task scheduler items are files, not
    folders, even though they have no name extension (i.e. no full stop or anything else to the right of the name).

    I suspect the task is protected through its entry in the registry. You need to open the registry editor (regedit.exe), then do this:

    • Navigate to this key:

      HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\Current Version\Schedule\TaskCache\Tasks\
    • Find "UpdateOrchestrator", using Ctrl+F. It will be against a key such as

      {AB62362D-3EF5-4BD4-92E1-D96143FD8738}
    • Change the owner of the key to "Administrators"
    • Grant full access to "Administrators".

    You then need to take the same four steps with this key:

    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Schedule\TaskCache\Tree\
