I was looking at my task scheduler and noticed that configuration for any given task is set for ie:  Vista,   Win 8 or win 7

anything but windows 10 which is currently installed.


attached is an example.  


Question:  should this configuration indicate windows 10 since that is what is installed?


thank you

Are you having any issues with your computer? If not, don't worry about things like that.

Hi, what you are seeing is normal if you look at other scheduled tasks you will see some that are windows ten, the mention of Vista etc.. is a legacy from earlier OS. Since the schedule is running on win 10... that's what it is doing, as suggested leave it alone, you need to invoke properties for the schedule, to change it anyway.

Thanks so much for the replies.  I have had so many problems with computer, some of it of my own doing I am sure.  Somebody has had access to my system for at least three years now.  I think they are gaining access somehow thru the printer.  Files disappear or change.  Settings change.  Constant issue with passwords.  My suspect did live in the house and I allowed on my network not knowing he was accessing my computer.   After he left the house,

is was still getting in somehow.  The internet account is no longer in my name so I think it may be over.   thanks for the help.
