I am receiving an error when I set up the task scheduler for system restore.
The new task has been created, but may not run because the account information could not be set.
The specific error is:
0x80070005 Access Denied

It should say "will not run", because it didn't.

I am set up as the computer administrator.
It automatically inserts my name/log-in as I'm the only one set up other than guest which is off and ASP.NET
which is limited and password protected.

My security for restore is drive c only.

In properties my computer description is blank, full is lower case of my last name and workgroup says MSHOME.
The only thing I can spot is my registration has my last name in upper case. :thumbsup:

There are two possible reasons for getting this error message from the Windows Task Scheduler:

1. You've entered the wrong password. The password you use must be the same one you use to login to Windows. If you do not have a login password then you do not need to enter any password.

2. There's a bug in Windows XP where you get this error message even if you enter the correct password.

Either way, check out the links below.

Thank you!

I don't have a password entered, but I was going to review link one just in case. The link doesn't find a hit...currently.

I think link two is the issue, I will contact them tomorrow.

Thanks again :thumbsup:

In general, the Task Manager will accept your use of no password - and then just won't execute the task. I haven't heard of it giving that error message tho'.

At my wife's office I had to put passwords on her systems so that Task Manager would run.

Here's an excellent thread with a lot of good advice about Task Scheduler: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/expertz...amp;m=1&p=1

What are you trying to schedule System Restore to do?
To create a restore point - or to perform a System Restore?

You may not be able to schedule System Restore because it requires user input to select the choice of what you are going to do with it.

Will it run manually?
