I have these weird tasks that show up in the Task Status of my Task Scheduler, with names like {2eb52c07-be90-41f4-a905-5720b673b796}. Never the same name twice. Their run result is always stopped, and they stop in the same second that they start. I have absolutely no idea what's causing them to register, because I can never catch them when they run, but they don't look to actually be doing anything.

I don't believe it's malware-related, because I've run ESET (online edition), AdwCleaner, MBAM, MBAR, TDSSKiller, and even JRT, and everything comes up clean.

I actually just had to reset my installation again (unrelated issue), but I'd seen them show up on the prior one as well.

Should I be worried about this?

Names like that are commonly Class ID's for installed applications. In simple terms they are a registry/system identifier for applications to run on your machine.

 

As Microsoft chooses to run all sorts of things on Win 10 without your knowledge, and you have used multiple scanners to check your system, no... I would not be concerned.

So probably Win 10 just being Win 10? Even with the different IDs each time that don't appear in the system registry? That's the part that concerned me the most, even though my system is clean. I feel stupid right now, I never noticed that tasks have different IDs each time.

 

Go to Action tap of the scheduled task to find out what program been executed.

Unless there's something that can find that out off a stopped task in Task Status alone, no can do.

So, by Googling, I finally got clued in to look in the Task Scheduler application logs to see what these mystery tasks were.

They're a different task each time, started by Task Scheduler under my username, but they all do the same action before being terminated.

"Global\JD_TaskSchedulerSchedule", along with an ID behind it, different each time.

This is where Google fails me, so what the heck is "Global\JD_TaskSchedulerSchedule"?

i believe the issue is coming from windows media center i had a issue like this at work were in event view it showed a bunch of task errors and if you open scheduled tasks it give a bunch of errors

issue is because win 7 used media center but it is no longer in win 10 

i would google this for you and provide more detail but i am back from my lunch break lol

 

but check into the windows media center tasks and that will probably fix it

This comp came with Win 10, so no WMC tasks to be had.
