exe). Internet Explorer 5.01 upgrades it to the new version of the Schedule service, Task Scheduler (MSTask.exe) and converts At jobs to Scheduled Tasks.With the old At service, all At jobs had to run in the same account as the service itself. The default account for the service was the Local System account, but it could be changed to another user account if desired.
Some Windows NT 4.0 users changed the At service’s account because they needed their With the Task Scheduler, each scheduled task can be configured to run in a different account. The Task Scheduler service itself has to run in the Local System account.
For backward compatibility, the Task Scheduler allows the user to set one account to use when running scheduled tasks that were created from At jobs. When Internet Explorer 5.01 is installed, this account is set to the Local System account. If you are running Windows NT 4.
0 and you changed the account that the At service ran in to something other than the Local System account, then after installing Internet Explorer 5.0 you would need to manually re-enter the user name and password for that account. To do this, in the Scheduled Tasks folder, click the Advanced menu, and then click AT Service Account. This must be done manually because Internet Explorer 5 Setup cannot decrypt the password that was used by the At service.For more information about At service compatibility, see online Bibliography:
