    Item in Task Scheduler


    Anyone know what this means? I know it has something to do with compatibility mode. But I don't know exactly what this line does.

    Task {1EC993CF-1DAD-4549-9461-A9A61AE6F7F9} Microsoft Corporation
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\pcalua.exe -a C:\PROGRAM FILES (x86)\COMMON FILES
    \INSTALLSHIELD\Driver\7\INTEL32\IDriver.exe -c /M{20D4A895-748C-4D88-871C-

    Update> This should have been Task Scheduler instead of Task Manager.
