    Task Scheduler at startup fails

    Task Scheduler will not run a .bat or .vbs on startup; both were tested with Task Scheduler Run.

    Thanks Brink. I want to restart my PC once as week because I never shut it off so I got that part working with shutdown.exe. I stuck a restart message in "startup" which works ok for this - I am going to take a look at your suggestion because the message comes up even if I log off.
