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

I find these entries on the Scheduled Tasks tab of CCleaner

Yes Task {7E2EA28F-1A7F-498D-B0A7-D33F02B8C378} Microsoft Corporation C:\Windows\system32 pcalua.exe -a C:\Users\XP\Desktop \trilogyi(1).exe -d C:\Users\XP\Desktop

Yes Task {8B6FF23A-0A2B-441E-928E-095AB67A51CB} Microsoft Corporation C:\Windows\system32\pcalua.exe -a C:\Users\XP\Desktop \trilogyi.exe -d C:\Users\XP\Desktop


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.

CCleaner writes a scheduled task that's only Run on Demand when CCleaner is started, and all it does is skip the UAC prompt.

It seems harmless enough but you can always delete a Scheduler item if you don't want it running on your property.

so you're saying that C:\Windows\system32 pcalua.exe is a CCleaner task ??

No I'm saying that if you look in Task Scheduler and see an Active CCleaner task under Scheduled listings, then it is likely for that.

This should explain what pcalua.exe is.
What does PCALUA.EXE do? - Microsoft Community

To see the task in Task Scheduler, click on Task Scheduler Library.
You are on Task Scheduler (Local), and then you displayed All Running Tasks.

You need to run Task Scheduler with Administrator authority to see these tasks.

trilogyi.exe is the program you have that causes these tasks...

David may have more on it but it appears to be the Program Compatibility Assistant scheduled to run itself. It is a MS System file so I would leave it alone to assure it does what Win7 wants it to.

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?

Greg just replied and I agree with him to keep the task.

I was typing this, so I'll add my 2 cents.

With a user name of XP, i wonder what legacy stuff you are running under Win 7...

I'm just guessing here, but i expect Win 7 detects something you have that needs compatibility checking.

I have one of these tasks in Win 7 x64 for an old printer/scanner i have.
Some features don't work for this device in x64 but work fine in x86.

Your screenshot shows what is currently running via scheduled tasks. The tasks that CCleaner kindly showed you will also show in Task Scheduler (but they are not currently running). Select one level down in the left hand pane - then look in the center pane:
