    1. Receive Notification of Missed Tasks (All Windows)
    By default when you are using Task Scheduler to automatically run programs you will not receive notification if a task is not run. This tweak can be used to cause Windows to show a pop-up message with the option to re-run any missed tasks.

    Create a new DWORD value, or modify the existing value called 'NotifyOnTaskMiss' using the settings below.

    Settings:
    System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SchedulingAgent]
    Name: NotifyOnTaskMiss
    Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
    Value: (0 = no notify, 1 = notify)

    2. Change the Scheduler Log File Settings (All Windows)
    These settings specify where the Scheduling Agent (Task Scheduler) should write the log file and the maximum log file size (in KB).

    Change the string value called "LogPath" to equal the required log filename (default is C:\Windows\SchedLgU.Txt).

    Change the DWORD value called "MaxLogSizeKB" to equal the maximum size of the log file in KB.

    Settings:
    System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SchedulingAgent]
    Name: LogPath, MaxLogSizeKB

    3. Disable Task Scheduler (Windows 95/98/Me)

    Task Scheduler is automatically installed in some versions of Windows, and also when you install Internet Explorer. This tweak will remove it from your system.

    There should be a value named 'SchedulingAgent' which is set to equal 'mstask.exe', this is the entry that loads the Task Scheduler. Delete this value to stop the task manager loading again.

    Note: You must also uninstall the Microsoft Windows Critical Update Notification from Add/Remove programs to completely remove Task Scheduler.

    Settings:
    System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices]
    Name: SchedulingAgent
    Type: REG_SZ (String Value)
    Value: mstask.exe

    4. Disable Drag and Drop Task Scheduling (Windows 2000/Me/XP)

    This restriction disables the ability to drag and drop programs into the Scheduled Tasks folder. This also disables the functionality of the Cut, Copy and Paste shortcut items.

    Create a new DWORD value, or modify the existing value called 'DragAndDrop' using the settings below.

    Settings:
    User Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Task Scheduler5.0]
    System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Task Scheduler5.0]
    Name: DragAndDrop
    Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
    Value: (0 = default, 1 = enable restriction)

    5. Disable Manual Task Control (Windows 2000/Me/XP)

    This restriction disables the ability for users to manually start and stop scheduled tasks. Tasks will continue to run automatically as configured.

    Create a new DWORD value, or modify the existing value called 'Execution' using the settings below.

    Settings:
    User Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Task Scheduler5.0]
    System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Task Scheduler5.0]
    Name: Execution
    Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
    Value: (0 = default, 1 = enable restriction)

    6. Remove Advanced Option from Task Scheduler Wizard (Windows 2000/Me/XP)

    This setting removes the "Open advanced properties for this task when I click Finish" checkbox from the task creation wizard. This should be enabled to simplify the process for novice users.

    Create a new DWORD value, or modify the existing value called 'Disable Advanced' using the settings below.

    Note: This setting does not prevent users from changing the properties of an existing task.


    Settings:
    User Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Task Scheduler5.0]
    System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Task Scheduler5.0]
    Name: Disable Advanced
    Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
    Value: (0 = default, 1 = enable restriction)

    7. Disable Changes to Task Properties (Windows 2000/Me/XP)

    This setting restricts users from changing the properties of an existing item in Task Scheduler.

    Create a new DWORD value, or modify the existing value called 'Property Pages' using the settings below

    Note: This setting only applies to existing tasks, users may still specify advanced properties on new tasks.

    Settings:
    User Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Task Scheduler5.0]
    System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Task Scheduler5.0]
    Name: Property Pages
    Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
    Value: (0 = default, 1 = enable restriction

    8. Disable Changes to Task Run Command (Windows 2000/Me/XP)

    This setting restricts changes to the run command and disables the Browse button in the Task Scheduler properties.

    Create a new DWORD value, or modify the existing value called 'Allow Browse' using the settings below.

    Settings:
    User Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Task Scheduler5.0]
    System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Task Scheduler5.0]
    Name: Allow Browse
    Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
    Value: (0 = default, 1 = enable restriction)

    9. Restrict Task Creation and Deletion (Windows 2000/Me/XP)

    These settings allow you to restrict the creation and deletion of items in Task Scheduler.

    Create two new DWORD values called 'Task Creation' and 'Task Deletion' and set them to '1' to disable task creation or task deletion respectively.

    Note: These settings do not prevent administrators from using the AT.EXE program to create new tasks.

    Settings:
    User Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Task Scheduler5.0]
    System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Task Scheduler5.0]
    Name: Task Creation, Task Deletion
    Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
    Value: (0 = default, 1 = enable restriction)
