    Cannot Disable Task Scheduler Tasks

    I thought I was the administrator? Apparently not.

    I wish there was a real equivalent to root on Windows, le sigh.

    How do I fix this?

    Admin account is not fully equivalent to unix root, but SYSTEM pseudo-account (well-known SID) is. You can use Sysinternals utility psexec to gain SYSTEM rights; at elevated prompt type
    psexec -i -d -s mmc taskschd.msc
