Yes the system is running XP. I was able to get around this with some info I got on another board that I posted. Here are the instructions I was given and was able to get the computer name to change:
When the windows task is created it grabs the current Windows logon ID and use that credential to run the task at specific time. The xxx\yyy indicates xxx is your domain name or computer name and yyy is your user ID. Now, to check what the computer name and user ID is stored on your computer, you can go to My Computer’s Properties page, then go to “Advanced” tab and click on “User Profiles”. This should show you a list of computer name and user ID stored on your computer. If the MSK_ABImport_Daily’s Run as field does not correspond to one of the entries, try the following steps.
1. Delete all the address book import schedules in Anti-Spam UI.
2. Delete all the windows scheduled tasks that start with MSK_ABImport_*
3. Now, add a new “Windows Address book” daily import schedule in Anti-Spam UI.
4. In Windows\Tasks, the new task should be created as hidden. Open the property page.
5. If the “Run as” field is still using some user name that does not exist on your computer, uncheck the “Run only if Logged on” box.
6. Now, in Run as field, type in one of the user names exactly as it’s shown in the User Profile page as mentioned above.
(Make sure that user has administrator privilege.)
Click on “OK” and it should prompt you for that user’s password. If the password is correct, it should be ready to run.
To test run, you can right click on the task and choose “Run”. Check and see if the task is run and the last run time is changed accordingly. "
In my case the computer name being entered for the MSK_ABImport_* was not showing in the list, so I still don't know where that came from, but I was able to change the "run as:" field sucessfully and got the scheduled address update to run.
Hope this helps anyone else with a similar problem. Joyjg
