Hi, I'm turning my old DELL Inspiron E1405 into a portable NES. I opened up task scheduler to run NESticle on system start up, but every time I start up my laptop it flashes a black screen with some writing on it; too fast to read what it said, and in the log I get this message "The attempt to retrieve account information for the specified task failed; therefore, the task did not run. Either an error occurred, or no account information existed for the task. The specific error is: 0x8004130f: No account information could be found in the task scheduler security database for the task indicated."
I've looked on Microsoft's knowledge base, but that was no help as usual, tired looking at a few forums but the weren't much help either. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

To stop a blue screen auto reboot so you can read the error message from the screen:
Go to Start -> Control Panel -> System
Go to Advanced
Under the Startup and Recovery section, click Settings...
Under System Failure, un-check "Automatically restart"
Now you can put that EXACT error message into Google.

I'm not getting a BSOD, it's like task scheduler tries to open the program, it flashes a black screen thens goes straight to my desktop. I'v even tried to make a batch file to start the program, and had it scheduled to start on system startup. Restart my computer and it still doesn't start the emulator.

Should we be answering his question in the first place? These games would be consider copy-write material by nintendo and their third party developers. He'd be downloading nes roms. Can possibly be legal if you already own the original source game.
