Windows 7: not able to disable/enable scheduled tasks

Windows 7 x86 & x64
not able to disable/enable scheduled tasks


I'm assisting a user migrate from Win XP to Win 7. The new computer is running Win 7 SP1 x86 in a domain AD environment.

I have migrated scheduled task from the XP machine to the Win 7 machine (.job files to .xml files). The migration seems to have worked ok and the credential seem OK.

Using my account, which has admin rights, I have disabled all the newly created task as the users wishes to enable them one at a time and ensure that they run correctly on the new PC before allowing the tasks to run as per their schedule.

The issue is that the user, who does not have admin rights, does not have permissions to disable/enable the tasks.

I have granted the user full permissions on c:\Windows\system32\task, have added her to the local Power User s group and this full permissions to the above but none of this seems to work.

Any suggestions on how to grant this user the rights to be able to disable/enable schedule tasks.

See if this will help, maybe you can give permissions to the individual tasks instead of the folder and configure the task to run as the user in question?

Windows 7 default scheduled tasks - which to disable?
I'm running Win 7 ultimate 64 bit. I'm taking a peak into the default Task Scheduler tasks to see what my OS thinks is a good idea to automatically run occasionally. In my earlier systems (XP), I've pretty much disabled all scheduled tasks to improve performance and decrease annoyance. ...
