Hi there!

I just upgrade my boot drive to a WD raptor 74GB.

Every time I start my PC, I get this error message; ;) ;)

"Failed to Run the scheduled task under the configured user account"

Thanks to hijackthis I think it has something to do with;

C:\WINDOWS\system32\wuauclt.exe :tazz:

Here is my hijackthis log;

Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Scheduled tasks...delete what you find there

This usually occurs when a task is scheduled to use a specific user account and the account is disabled
