Windows 7: I find these entries on the Scheduled Tasks tab of CCleaner

Active tasks are also displayed in a pane in the lower center of the screen once it loads Scheduler.

Scroll down to click on Scheduler which is where I found CCleaner's task.

Does it need to be a scheduled task or not? If it does, what program is responsible for it being there? I know it's a valid MS program with Win 7 Home Premium x64.
Do you have a user (or an app) that created a user profile using the name "XP"?

What threw me off is your insisting this is a CCleaner task. Where does it appear anywhere related to CCleaner - which also has a task it runs listed in Active Tasks>Scheduled to bypass UAC when you open it?
In CCleaner under Tools - Startup there is a Scheduled Tasks tab and that is what the OP was referring.

Well here's what CCleaner shows....but I can't find the trilogyi.exe thing anywhere in task scheduler. You've kindly explained what pcalua was (found that myself though before I even posted...I know bad title) when I first installed Win 7 I made a folder on my storage drive and download everything I would need for a 64 bit OS. One of those things was: trilogyi.exe and the SS up above is it's properties sheet.....that's why I'm trying to find out what it's for...

I DL'd lot of things recommended on this and similar site, including MS. Trilogyi.exe was one of those things. It was like 2 months ago, I DL'd it and can find no info on it anywhere.


So far this is what Google has turned up:

trilogyi.exe is required by third-party software or hardware and should not disabled.

trilogyi.exe is a process which belongs to Microsoft(R) Windows (R) 2000 Operating System from Microsoft Corporation.




LOL...forget it...I found it....it's a pulsing waveform Visualization for WMP :/


I take one, "derp" for this post :/

Just cause I now know everyone is curious...

I KNEW I should renamed that file, I remember thinking that when I DL'd it from MS :/


"Another One Bites the Dust" ....with the Pulsar Visualization in the Trilogy Set






Maybe this was a two-derp post :/

Look at the screenshot that I showed in post #10... the screenshot below where I quoted your post.

See where I selected Task Scheduler Library in the left hand pane?
Now look in the center pane in the name column...
...see the task that starts with {29B01A.....?

When I look at the CCleaner info from your screenshots, I see a column named "Program"...
...under that are two "programs":
{7E2EA....
{8B6FF....
Still looking at CCleaner - there is a column named "File"...
...under that I see the pcalua app and the rest of the command line info for the task.

Now go to your Task Scheduler
select Task Scheduler Library in the left hand pane
select {7E2EA.... from the center pane
select the tab named "Actions" from the bottom part of the center pane.
Now do you see the pcalua app and the rest of the command line info for the task?
(You might need to expand the column named "File".)

Hopefully now you have located the info in both CCleaner and the Windows native interface to those tasks.

It appears that you downloaded and ran the file named trilogyi.exe two times. The second copy was automatically named trilogyi(1).exe. My suggestion would be that you delete the file named "trilogyi(1).exe" and delete the task associated with it. You probably only need the first file and the scheduled task associated with it.

What task would be needed for such a program that visualizes music?

I would run Malwarebytes and SUPERAntiSpyware.com - Downloads full scans to see what they have to say about it.

Do you have such a service in msconfig>Startup or Services after Hiding all MS Services? I would remove them and then uninstall the program if you don't want it. At the minimum it probably doesn't need to start up with WIndows or schedule anything.

What do the others think?

No I want it. In WMP 12 u can DL visualizations from MS FOR the media player....that's what the trilogyi.exe was...but that was back on OCT 8th lol
