Re: Event Viewer Shows Frequent TaskScheduler Failure (CrawlStartPages)
I get this message as well, but so do two other Vista machines that I
have looked at.
If you start the Management Console and select the Task Scheduler, you
will find "CrawlStartPages" as a system task. If you look at the details
of the task, you will see that it is set to run when the computer is
idle, and to retry every 10 minutes until it runs successfully. When I
compare the times that it attempted to run with the error log, I see
that the messages were logged when I was using the machine, and
therefore could not run, and so terminated. To me, that means that the
error was generated because the task could not run (the computer wasn't
idle). This shouldn't be an error message, at best it should be a
What the task is and what it does, I don't know. I can't find any
information whatsoever about it. It does seem to be a critical task,
though, because it can't be disabled or altered in any way.
