    Task Manager task always running. 'Ready'?

    I set up a task to run at a certain time every day: at 2:00. So why is it always running?

    it starts the (free download) Zonealarm firewall program: D:\UtilUso\Checkpoint\ZoneAlarm\zatray.exe

    Every time I look at Task Manager though, the status is 'running'. Would think that it would be at 'ready' status after Zonealarm was started (after 2:00)?
