I found similar info that you descriibe at the HP webstie (see below). However, I don't have Task Scheduler and searching for it finds nothing. I did find something called Scheduled Tasks and it looks like it would perform the same function as a Task Scheduler (There is an icon for it in my control panel also). Is there any difference between Task Scheduler and Scheduled Tasks? Am I missing out on any functionality if I have one and not the other? BTW, I have Windows XP pro. Is this program named differently for different Windows operating systems?http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...e=7642&lang=enHP Notebook PCs - Registration Reminder Continues to Appear after Registration is CompletePopup reminders are controlled by Task Scheduler
Some notebook programs continue to display pop up reminders for the user to take some action even if the user performs the action. Reminder popup windows may include: Easy Internet Sign-Up (if your pop-up is regarding Internet), PC Registration (if your pop-up is regarding registering your PC), Extended Service plan (if your pop-up is regarding warranty), Service plan (if your pop-up is regarding warranty).
The Windows Task Scheduler can be set to automatically start programs or display messages at prearranged times. Unfortunately, if the desired action is only supposed to happen once, the entry is not removed from the scheduler after the user takes the suggested action. To stop the action, the user must run the scheduler and manually remove the entry.Remove an automatic action from the Task Scheduler
To prevent automated tasks from starting and popup user messages from displaying, perform the following:
- Click Start, type Task Scheduler in the search field, select Task Scheduler when it appears, and press the Enter key to open the Task Scheduler.
If prompted for permission, click Continue.
- In the left column, click Task Scheduler Library.
- In the center column, select the task you want to stop.
- In the right column, click Delete, and then click Yes to confirm deletion.
- Close the Task Scheduler window.
The task or reminder will no longer begin automatically.
