Windows 7: Scheduled task not showing up in Active List

Scheduled task not showing up in Active List

Hi all,

I setup my first scheduled task of an executable. But the task is not showing up in the list of Active tasks. I know that it is there because I re-created it and it stated that it already exists. In case I have to modify it, I need to be able to see it. And yes, I have clicked to show 'Hidden Tasks'.

Thanks for your help.
