Windows 7: Task Scheduler & Windows Media Player quit working together

Task Scheduler & Windows Media Player quit working together

I used to run a nature sound file in Media Player, to help me sleep, with Task Scheduler set to wake me up with an online radio program. First task stops, "wakeup" task starts immediately after; worked great for almost a year.

Suddenly, doesn't work. Running task doesn't stop, and either wakeup task never starts, or, if it does, it runs as some sort of "ghost" instance: no window showing in the Taskbar, nothing showing in Task Manager (neither as application or as process). I have to restart the whole computer to get it to stop!

Checked all the settings in Task Scheduler, tried drawing up new tasks; no change.

Too bad I bought this PC with Win7 preinstalled--no disks to rebuild from.

This is not an "audio" problem, this forum section. The "Software" section would be more applicable to try and get help for your problem. Software - Windows 7 Forums

Most new PC's do not come with discs. However, they usually have a Recovery Partition on the hard drive that will allow restoring. Also most come with a procedure to create a set of recovery discs.

The recovery partition access varies by Vendor. With a Dell it's F8 at POST (Power On Self Test).
