Windows Activation Technologies/Task Scheduler

  Task Schedular --> Task Schedular Library --> Microsoft --> Windows --> Windows Activation Technologies -->

Windows Activation Technologies 2 Tasks

  In error I deleted the two entires in there.

Can somebody give me enough info so that I can reEnter those two entries back in?

From what I can see, these are created by the KB970133. To do that "properly", you could uninstall it and reinstall it.

Hi,

 

Not sure why you need them, on my Windows 7 with a OEM license the tasks are schedule to run in the year 2020! I didn't change them.

 

The tasks have reference to the update KB971033 available at https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/971033

We can mark this thread solved.  With the help of the posters above, here's what I did:

Uninstall KB971033 either by wusa-batchfile or by WU's Installed Update's uninstall mode [Two computers need one of the two given].
Reinstall KB971033 via a long-winded MSU file: WindowsActivationTechnologyKB971033[64].msu

I learned some things:  don't parallel copy and attempt fix by copying back from backup to original; make changes from within programs before attempting to finetune within Task Scheduler; had to restore a 12/16 OS image.  Moving forward with lessons learned.
