I'm using XP home and i'm having trouble to scheduled my laptop to defragment. It says :

An error has occured while attempting to set system task account information.
The specific error is:
0x80070005 :access is denied
You do not have permission to perform the requested operation.

The problem is, the /system32 file is not block by any pw and i'm logging in by the only account this computer have. So, it has to be the admin as i've check, and found no other account.

I'm a bit curious about this. Any ideas why?

FYI - you must be using a password to run the Task Scheduler app in XP. A blank password will not work.

It is very doubtful that this is the only account on the system. For example, your desktop is comprised of 2 accounts - your account and the All Users account. You've also got another account called the Default User - it's used to set up new profiles. Usually there are also a couple of other accounts that don't even show up under normal circumstances.

Some systems hide the Administrator account. The easiest way to check this is to go to Start...Run...and type in "control userpasswords2" (without the quotes) and see what it says about your current account and any other accounts on the system.

If you get an error message, or an access denied message when trying this - you don't have administrative privileges in the account that you're using.

Have you tried creating a new, administrator account and running the task from there? This will tell you if the problem is with your profile, or if it's with the entire system.

Once you've weeded through all of this stuff, then comes the fun stuff (solving access denied messages). Here's a little how to on that subject: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/42756/how-to-fix-an-access-denied-errors/

Good luck!
