It used to be in the Windows OS, but Microsoft updated it to be part of IE. If you damage IE enough, the task scheduler fails or vanishes.
Find and run Housecall, Spybot, Adaware and Cwshredder. If all is ejected with those, then an update to IE may bring the scheduler back.

puts me back at my desktop.
- My updated Norton AntiVirus 2003 will not enable "Automatic Live UpDate" that I once had. However I periodically still get the popup showing virus definitions are updated. Virus scan of my hard disk shows no viruses. Norton tells me: "contact the computer manufacturer (Dell, Model 8100 desktop, 2001)
or Microsoft for help with restoring the files". I reached this forum through Dell Help.
- Recently rec'd two e-mails reported to have been sent by me. (I didn't send them.) to an address in my Compuserve Address Book. Titles: "Forum notify" and "RE: Text message". Looks like I have a worm or virus even though my Norton scan showed no viruses.
- Thanks for any help you may provide. I am anxious to clear my computer and devote my time to my taxes.
