Scheduled tasks worked on Windows XP when it was originally installed on a
network with other computers. When I took it off, Scheduled Tasks would not
work. There is a problem with XP when a computer is removed from a network.
Can anyone help?

One of the errors I was receiving when trying to run Scheduled Tasks...this showed in the Scheduled Tasks log: "0x80070534: No mapping between account names and security IDs was done."

Also, I just now set Win XP up to "Run as:" nt authority\system and it
works. What do I do to get it back to run as a user name and how did it get
there in the first place?? HELP!!

I have Win XP Pro SP2.

Please help.

Sounds like your Windows install has been hosed. How did you set XP to Run as System?
