    I purchased UD2008, and registered online.

    When I try to schedule a defrag, at end it asks me to-
    Set Account Information
    Run as:

    No matter what I enter (I've tried MANY combos...?), it gives me-
    Login failure: unknown user name or bad password. o_O

    UD's NON-support won't answer me! :mad:

    Q?- What do I enter to get it working, or is there a problem with this Scheduled feature?

    BTW- My computer is sooo fast, once I stopped first doing an Analyze/after malware scan... (uses file last accessed)! :D

    If you correctly enter your user name and password that you use for Windows logon it should work. Do you use a password for Windows or is it automatically logged in?
    Also - are you able to create a task using Windows Task Scheduler? When you "Add Scheduled Task" it'll present similar User name/Password box. Does it work for you?

    Re: Can't Schedule Defrag in UltimateDefrag 2008? SOLUTION!

    I don't use a password for Windows login, it's automatic/no password & I'm admin.

    I tried just clicking OK with default username/Run as: in box-
    Win (XP home SP3) comes back & says-
    Logon faiure: User account restriction. Possible reasons are blank passwords are not allowed, logon hour restrictions, or policy restriction has been enforced.
    I Googled & found a solution that allows XP users to just click OK!-

    Scheduled Tasks - Applying/Running tasks without a password

    For XP Pro: Go to Start/Administrative Tools/'Local Security Policy/Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options
    Accounts: Limit local account use of blank passwords to console logon only. This is enabled by default, disable it.

    For XP Home: (Keith Miller) Go to Start/Run/Regedit and navigate to this key:

    Value name= "limitblankpassworduse (click)", Type: REG_DWORD, Data: 0 (disabled) 1 (enabled)

    Scott :D
