Task Scheduler error


R

I just learned about the Task Scheduler and added one task. I've
noticed however that often when I click on 'Task Scheduler (Local) on
the left pane this error displays:

'An error has occurred for task Reminders - owner. Error message: The
specific account name is not valid.'

I see that task listed in the middle 'Task Status' pane, and it displays
a 'last run succeeded' date, but I don't see any way to see what account
name it uses. When I look in the 'Active Tasks' pane to find the task
to change it, I don't see any task named 'Reminders'. Where would I
find it and If I do find it, what account name should I use?

Thanks very much.

It's the calendar reminders for a user on your system called 'owner' -
perhaps you used that username before and subsequently deleted it ??

Anyhow it should be visible under

Task Scheduler Library > Microsoft > Windows > Windows Calendar
