Right clicking that Shortcut, then clicking Properties, then
copying the Target, comes up with this for me ---
%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe ::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\::{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}\::{D6277990-4C6A-11CF-8D87-00AA0060F5BF}

I think it goes into the next County.

"delete task file thats keeps being created by a virus."

You need to get rid of the virus!!!!!!!!!!!!

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10

Scheduled tasks are stored in C:\Windows\Tasks, but I agree with Jefro. -- You need to get rid of the virus. There's no telling what other nasty things it might be doing to your system.

Ditto. You appear to have identified the behavior is caused by a virus, which leads me to believe you know what virus it is. Clean the virus, because I guarantee if it's creating a scheduled task (haven't seen that one before), it's doing a lot more than that.

I find it hard to believe that a virus would create a scheduled task. Maybe a prankster is more likely?

Hi guys. Thanks for the replies. Win32/Conficker is the virus. It infected 1 of our servers then rolled-out to over 100 workstations. I'm told it's a web-based worm. Whenever the antivirus (NOD32) reports a hit, I notice a job being created in the scheduled tasks. It's scheduled to run a "rundll.exe" process about an hour from being created. I thought in the short-term I could create a batch file scheduled to run every 45mins to delete the jobs created since the jobs are created almost every hour.
