    Hello,

    Has anyone seen this message when shutting down Vista Premium?

    I've searched the web for a fix or what is causing it and i did not get
    anywhere.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Thank you in advance

    Hi,

    Do you have any tasks that are scheduled to run at shutdown, such as a
    synch?

    Hi,

    I get the message "Schtask.exe failed to initialize" at shut down as
    well. It just stays on the screen long enough to read. I don't appear to
    have any tasks scheduled for shut-down. I checked my logs as best I
    could and cannot see any mention of the error message at all. Vista
    Home Student 32 bit.

    Any ideas?

    Tinov.
