    Hey Guys...

    I've noticed when I prep a policy and export it to an .xml...I make sure to have it set to zero scheduled tasks and the checkbox for applying default tasks is unchecked. Then I tie that configuration into an install package. When I install the package...all the correct settings are applied from the configuration however when I check scheduled tasks from the GUI on the client...I see the following 5:

    Regular automatic update
    Automatic update after dial-up connection
    Automatic update after user logon
    Automatic startup file check (user logon)
    Automatic startup file check (successful update)

    For the life of me I can't create a configuration, that applies to a new package and is basically left blank, so that I can set pre-defined tasks in my child policies. (I want my parent policy to be blank throughout...if this is not a best practice, please let me know)

    Thanks guys for any help you can provide.

    - Alex

    o_O If I well understand you, you mean you want :

    NO automatic update ?

    NO statup file check after update ?

    why install an antivirus if you want to disable these so important tasks o_O :blink: o_O

    It is not a good idead to disable default tasks although it's feasible. Deafult tasks can be edited or even removed if you assign them an ID of a deault task in the configuration editor.
