I am running Windows XP Home-SP2
My task scheduler for disk clean up + defrag doesn't appear as it used to. Once I was able to just move my cursor over each task to see when it was last run+is scheduled to run again. That option has seemed to disappear!

Also, even tho I have disk clean up to run each week I still get prompted to start the program. Can you tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Task scheduler isn't going to do me any good if it doesn't perform properly. It's possible I have settings wrong in the "my computer" part of my system? Wrong box checked?

Please advise.
Thank you

I appreciate your link, but, I'm still not able to view the history of my scheduled tasks.
Task scheduler is running, supposedly.
There is no history tab that I can find.
Also, that command prompt, schtasks/query/folist/v isn't recognized by my system.

I'm hoping that another member here that is using Windows XP Home-SP2 might be able to shed more light on this.

Thank you for trying to help at any rate!
