Windows 10: What is "JD_TaskSchedulerSchedule"? Solved

    What is "JD_TaskSchedulerSchedule"?


    So over several Windows 10 resets and the Creators Update, I've noticed something in my Task Scheduler that keeps giving me pause. At least once every night, a randomly named task that's not registered in the scheduler (and is not in the registry or the scheduler folders) will come up. The names look like Class IDs, stuff like {3ff0f6fb-1d05-4f62-8f1f-9be6d20167f8}, different each time. They always run one thing: an action by the name of "Global\JD_TaskSchedulerSchedule", with a different Class ID-looking number behind it, again different each time. Usually they terminate right off (within the same second of running) and I only see it once. Tonight, I've seen it three times and the third time is still running. It doesn't look to be doing anything beyond that.

    The good thing, if there is one, is that I'm pretty sure this isn't malware. I've thrown Norton 360, ESET Online Scanner, MBAM, MBAR, TDSSKiller, ADWCleaner, and even the Junkware Removal Tool at it, and they all say I'm clean, plus it's persisted across several resets and at least one upgrade so it's more than likely something that's s'posed to be on here.

    I've been up and down with Google and I can't find anything on it. I've even been to another forum, nothing there either.

    If anyone has seen this before and can help me out with figuring out what it's doing, I'd really appreciate it.

    What I would do:
    Extract the task and save it somewhere. Then delete it from the Task Scheduler. See what happens in the next few days, and see if it re-appears. If everything is working fine without it being there, then hold on to the extracted task for a while. If everything works good, then I would delete it. But that's what I would do.

    I also tried searching online. The only thing that I found was your post at the other forum.

    Problem is, it doesn't show up in the registry, the scheduled tasks, or even the tasks folder. Just Task Status and the task scheduler operational log. I can't delete or extract from there.

    Okay I see. Can you take a screen shot of what you mean by that you see it in the Task Status? And can you copy/paste the text from the log file that relates to it? Lemme see if I can find anything about it. Hopefully someone else can jump in and help if they know anything about it.

    The log entries are from the most recent instance, the one that decided to run longer than a second. I can copy/paste others that stopped in the same second, if need be.

    I can and have, just need to wait for mod approval on the post.

    ...I tried posting it three times before I realized it needed to be approved first. Thought that new accounts couldn't post URLs or something like that. I feel rather dumb right now.

    Oh okay. Yea I don't really remember the rules of waiting some time in the beginning until you can post an attachment. So whenever you get the chance, attach that on here and we'll see what's what.

    Post has been approved. I linked the screenshot instead of attaching it, hope that's OK.

    I see. Okay. So I would open Task Scheduler itself (I see you're accessing Task Scheduler from Computer Management; refer to my screen shot). Then go through all the folders and look for something to do with JD.

    Notice how I accessed those folders, I pressed the arrow to the left the names. Maybe you can try pressing the arrow to the left of Task Scheduler, and maybe you'll have the same layout as mine.

    Like I've said, it only shows up under Task Status and in the Event Viewer. I've been all over the Task Scheduler folders. It's not there. I've been in the task folder in System32. Not there. Even been in the registry, and as far as I can tell, not there either.
