    Maintenance Activator Task


    I posted here about year ago concerning a scheduled task called Maintenance Activator. I still cannot find this task listed in the Task Scheduler or by using schtasks /query in command prompt. Does anyone know about or have any information concerning this task?

    I think this may be a Microsoft naming anomaly.

    The task is called Diagnosis

    Hi tracit99,

    Just to confirm, you were looking for "Maintenance Activator" and not Automatic Maintenance? (I'm not familiar with Maintenance Activator, so I just wanted to make sure that's what it's suppose to be)

    Hello,

    Yes I am looking for information regarding the Maintenance Activator task. See screenshot. "Reason: Windows will execute 'Maintenance Activator' scheduled task that requested waking the computer."

    I think the following link has some useful suggestions for fixing this. It was @b1rd suggesting Automatic Maintenance that made me realise I was on the wrong track earlier.

    Thanks for the link. I know how to make it go away. However, I want to know more about this task and why it does not show up in the Task Scheduler or C:\windows\system32\tasks or the Registry.
