Chapter 17. Securing Your PC > Scheduling Maintenance Tasks

Scheduling Maintenance Tasks

Maintenance tasks are easy to overlook. If you are not good at remembering to perform these things, you can set up Windows XP to perform scheduled tasks at a set interval. For instance, you can set up the backup program to run once a week (or once a month or daily). You can schedule maintenance tasks as well as other tasks including checking and downloading mail. You basically can run any program at the time and interval you select. This section covers how to add and modify scheduled tasks.

tip

It's embarrassing, but when you do find out you have a virus, you should notify anyone with whom you've had contact and you might have unintentionally infected. Send them the fix if possible. If not, at least alert them so that they can check their own systems.
