I put some events in the Task Scheduler, Enabled them, and selected
"Start Using Task Scheduler. I also selected "Notify Me of Missed
Tasks." I rebooted a couple days later and got the following error

"Task Scheduler Service"

(The standard Windows screensaver is running, and Power Setting ->
Standby/Turn off Monitor/Turn off Hard Disk are all set to Never.)
I get the error message whenever I reboot.

Norton Speed Disk:
The tasks are sheduled early AM on different days.
These applications run correctly when selecting 'run' from the task
Any ideas on how to get the tasks to run?
