Here's what I found about scheduler.exe: http://www.liutiliti...rary/scheduler/ As stated, it is not an essential process. A good start-up control utility like free WinPatrol will allow you to stop it: http://www.winpatrol.com/

After installing WinPatrol, simply right click the little scotty dog in the Notification area and choose "Display start-up info." Left click any item you wish to prevent from starting with Windows to highlight it, and then select "Disable" down to the right. The process will no longer start Automatically. It does not disappear from the list, and at any time you wish, you can go back and "enable" it again. Disabling an application from auto-start with WinPatrol does not prevent the application from being started manually whenever you want. WinPatrol will even let you "disable" itself.

When it runs full time, however, it acts as a basic system monitor. Scotty will "woof" and you will be presented with a confirmation dialog whenever changes are made to many system settings. WinPatrol always allows you a choice, so if I didn't make the change on purpose, I can have WinPatrol prevent it from happening. Nice.

For more of what I have learned (mostly the hard way) see my Vox: http://doc1101.vox.com/ The "links" are not live. Copy and paste the web addresses to your browser address bar in a new tab.

Thanks that's not what I want to happen.

I don't want to stop it from coming up I want to fix the problem.

I use scheduler a lot and I want it to work it is the "?. exe has generated errors and will be closed by windows" is what I want to fix and now it is doing it with a different program. I want o fix the error all together so I can use the programs.

OK, but that's harder. Especially since you mention another program giving the same error. This begins to make it sound like the system rather than the scheduler. So~

What changed with your system just before you started getting the error message? New program? Update? New hardware?

Do you have red error messages in the Event Viewer? Yellow "Warnings?"
What do they say? Any common elements?
Event Viewer is found under Admistrative Tools either in All Programs or the Start Menu. If it does not show, it can be added from the Taskbar and Start Menu applet of the Control Panel.

Are you experiencing any other goofyness, even if seemingly unrelated?

And, of course, are you completely confident that you are malware-free?

I INSTALLED VERSION TRACKER YESTERDAY AND THAT IS WHAT IS GIVING ME THE ERROR NOW. Every time I went to run it and got half way and stop and gave me this error.

OK. Unfortunately when so many items are discovered by an anti- program, it usually means that there is something going on at a deeper level. Often these baddies appear to be removed and then come back. To make sure that your system is really clean, lets get help from the trained specialists in the Malware section of the forum. These guys and gals go through what amounts to college level training to help folks like you completely clean-up spyware infections.

First, please go here: http://www.geekstogo...-Log-t2852.html Do everything on the list. If one or more of the steps just cannot be completed, go on to the next.

Once done, post a HiJackThis log here: http://www.geekstogo...o-Here-f37.html along with as much information as you can about the problems, what you've done (and couldn't do), and what errors you found and reported to me. These guys are good. You will get help specific to your situation.

If any problems remain after your helper gives you a clean bill of health, post back in this thread, and we will get things working right.

Good luck and happy hunting.
