    I have an @echo script running on a computer daily, want it OFF


    I have
    "@echo off

    at 21:00 /every:M,T,W,Th,F,S,Su shutdown -s -t 60 -c "shutting down
    for the night!"


    echo Done!


    pause&end"

    a buddy wrote that to turn off my sons computer at 9pm every night. Now that he's older we've given him the computer but it still shuts off at 9pm every night, even after it was upgraded to windows 10.

    Any help would be awesome!

    Right click the window icon on the lower left corner. Then type: Task Scheduler. You should be able to turn it off there.

    This will more than likely be a scheduled task.

    Click Start >> Type/Search for Task Scheduler
    Now have a look in the list of tasks to see if it is there

    If you see the task there, right click it and select disable or delete.
    Disable will stop it from running any more without actually deleting the task.

    I get a prompt saying "Task Scheduler service is not available. Task Scheduler will attempt to connect to it."
    After hitting OK a couple of times it loads. It doesn't show what was added here.

    I checked Task Scheduler prior to originally posting...

    It should show as that script shut down the computer last night; This is frustrating.

    In hindsight, should have probably used task scheduler to run a shutdown .bat...

    Do any of these folders have the script in?

    Failing that, do you see any reference to it in your start up programs?
    Open Task Manager >> Click the Start-up Tab >> Can you see anything there in reference to the shutdown script?

    Could you have another program installed that runs scheduled tasks that runs it, check your installed programs to see if anything stands out maybe.

    I can't think of anything that would run on a schedule that wouldn't be in the Task Scheduler unless it was managed via another program.

    the script posted above is ran as a .bat file... Couldn't find anything relating to the file name or command in scheduler.

    I understand, have you checked your list of installed programs to see if you have another program installed that can schedule tasks?

    Something must be running that batch file on a schedule, if it's not the Task Scheduler then there might be a 3rd party program installed running it.

    The system is barren except for flagship games, adobe cs6 master, and office 07. all of which have been present except a couple games before the system was updated to W10.
