    Task Scheduler not completing tasks

    Task scheduler is set to trigger a few tasks once every two weeks - specifically, to open a certain web page in Firefox. It works, except it doesn't seem to know that it succeeded, and it launches the task again later (seems like is obeying the 2 hours retry setting). Any idea why it wouldn't know that the page had been launched?

    Attaching xml of task scheduler settings for this particular task.

Bad tasks in task scheduler
I upgraded from Win 7 to Win 8. When I open up task scheduler I receive several messages saying "The selected task "taskname" no longer exists". How do I remove these dead tasks? I assume they are left over somehow from Win 7.
