    NirSoft TaskSchedulerView and Task scheduler itself both show the same lists of tasks and these rogues do not appear in either of them. I am opening them both as Admin and have set TS to show Hidden tasks.

    I do not have Trillian. I have not heard of it before.

    I know this is not relevant to you, but I thought others might like to read this old article which I think is interesting (though I don't know if it applies to Windows 10 as well):

    Hi,

    I'm very sorry for reviving this old thread, I just want to know if anyone ever figured this out. I have the exact same problem as the person who has started this thread and I don't have Trillian installed (though I did use it on another computer, I'm fairly certain I've never installed it on this particular computer). I ran several malware/anti-virus scans and they all came up clean, so I'd like to imagine this isn't caused by a virus, but I'd appreciate it if anyone can share more information they might have about it.

    This problem has not happened in the last 30 days [the longest time period that can be selected in that view] even though there have not been any deliberate actions to account for any change in behaviour.

    I have been on Windows 10 Home x64 Version 1909 Build 18363.535 for 33 days. It is possible that the last update solved the problam. I just don't know.

    Baffled but happy,
    Denis


    But then it started running again two hours ago [about 9 hours after my post]. I had not done anything significant during this period.

    See Andy Bruin's apparent solution

    Hidden Task Revealer - TenForums
    aka
    Ghost Task Revealer - TenForums

    I have just run it on this problem computer and it revealed a task then I used it to delete the task it revealed.

    There have been a lot of discussions in Hidden Task Revealer - TenForums aka Ghost Task Revealer - TenForums

    A fully-functioning fix has been posted in that thread at post #56
    GhostTaskSuppressor v1.3

    FYI:

    Wininit cache task is disabled on my machine. I seem to remember doing the following a long time ago:

    Windows – Continuous Disk Write + WebCacheV01.dat + V01.log – Issue - CodeProject

    I'm missing something. Why did you post that?

    I could swear that there was a post in this thread about hidden tasks running that included a screenshot showing wininet cache task and that it was difficult to track down when it ran or why it ran.

    I can't see the post so maybe it was deleted or else in another thread.

    EDIT:

    It was this post:

    Understood.

    That diagram was posted to illustrate the statement that the ghost task {e9e87558-3d46-49e9-bde6-f8b84dace1c6} was not shown in the All running tasks pane.
    - That CacheTask merely happened to be one of the All running tasks at that moment.

    All the best,
