Windows 7: How to delete items in task scheduler/manager

How to delete items in task scheduler/manager

When getting the latest flash update...somehow Google Chrome was slipped into the deal.

Took me forever to clean the folders...and multiple multiple registry entries. I believe I got it all except I have a couple entries is Task Scheduler

How do I delete these entries ?

Also...what is "HotStart" ??

Click on "Task Scheduler Library" in the upper left corner of your screen print.

Right Click on a Task in the list and you should see a "Delete" option.

Click on the HotStart task and look at the Actions tab.
Hopefully you will see a folder/program name and you will know what this task is for.
Maybe there are comments in the General tab / Description that will help?
If you can't tell what the HotStart task does by looking at the task info, post back what you see and hopefully someone here will know.

Hope this helps,

The Google task were not in the running task window...they were in the log of executed tasks...noticed I had setting to show last 7 days so that's why they appeared...chnaged setting to last 24 hours....presto...they were gone...changed back to 7 days of saved log items and Google is definitely gone for good...
