Question Windows 7 PC not running scheduled reboot task

Jan 28, 2022
Hi, I have a PC in my network that simply won't reboot even with a scheduled task setup. What is wrong with it ?

I have set it up to run like this:

  • as administrator with password
  • set to highest privileges
  • run whether user is logged on or not
The action is to start a program c:\support\shutdown.exe and arguments are -f -r -m and is scheduled to run at 4am

In the history it says tasks completed but the event logs say otherwise

It works if I manually trigger it so I know the process is setup ok so why is this PC refusing to reboot?
