JSI Tip 3405. How do I remove the Task Scheduler from IE 5.x on Windows NT 4.0, if the options is not available in Add/Remove Programs?

In tip 0938, we morphed the Task Scheduler into the Schedule Service.

If you prefer, you could try the following approach first:

1. Use Regedt32 to navigate to HKEY_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\SchedulingAgent.

2. Double-click the UninstallString value name in the right-hand pane and copy the data to the clipboard.

3. Exit Regedt32.

4. Press Start / Run and paste the data into the Open box.

5. Press OK.

6. Using the chart in tip 0938, verify that the Schedule Service is properly configured.

NOTE: The UninstallString should contain a data value similar to:

RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSectionEx C:\WINNT\INF\mstask.inf,,,256
