Can't get Task Scheduler to work

  1. Hi Everyone,

    I've been trying to schedule a command to be run to terminate a process and restart it at a set time interval (I'm using a batch file to accomplish this but if anyone else has a better idea I would appreciate it). However, I get this error when I schedule the task:

    An error has occurred while attempting to set task account information. The specific error is: 0x80070005: Access is denied. You do not have permission to perform the requested operation.

    I checked on Microsoft.com and it said that I needed an update/patch in order to get it working again. The only problem is that in order to get the patch I have to contact Microsoft and the problem there is that I have to pay for it. So I'm just wondering if anyone here has a copy of the patch and would be kind enough to help me out. Thanks in advance.
