    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.

    Thanks.

Bad tasks in task scheduler in General Support
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.
