    Task Scheduler Not Working Properly

    Hello, my computer is overclocked with software set to run using the Task Scheduler. It is set to run at startup, but with "fast startup", the program doesn't launch. How can I make this overclock program run at startup without sacrificing "fast startup".

    What kind of software? Are they Apps, desktop programs, sevices? If a desktop that can run at logon then just put shortcuts in the Startup Folder. Or you can add to the Registry Run key using my RunIt utility from here:

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.
