I have scheduled several tasks to happen while I'm sleeping every night ( Disk Cleanup, System incremental backup, spyware scan, and antivirus scan etc.).
Even though I am the administrator for this system and I input my user name and password when I originally schedule these tasks, I always come back the next day to find that none of them have run (NB I tried resetting my user password in Safemode, then resetting my password for each scheduled task. That still doesn't work). Whats up, and how do I fix this :thumbsup:

Make sure your Task Scheduler service is running in the services control panel
