Hello ,

 

Doing updates & tidy up on my seldom used Win7 Home Premium 64 bit computer ,

under Scheduled tasks I've found the two weird entries below , both set to " triggered start ".

Checking properties and searching on the net didn't help , to be on the safe side I have disabled both .

I'd love some advice on this , any way of finding out what these entries are /should I run scans or just delete it.

Thanks in advance :)

Chances are they are tied too one or more apps that are no longer installed. You can click on the item and in the bottom window click on the "Actions" tab. That should tell you more about the entry. Regardless, they are harmless and you can safely leave them alone or disable them, your call.

 

BTW, if you use disk imaging software on a regular basis you won't have to be concerned about making changes such as this. You'll always have a safe haven to which you can return.

Hello Allen ,

Thanks for your answer to my post and sorry for the late response !

 

I did check as suggested , last run date mid 2014 , found this page below, seems the program is related to Vista , really weird, computer never had Vista installed ,  only XP PRO and now Win 7 Home premium.

As I said above, don't worry about them.
