Consider the following scenario:

  • You install security update 2305420, which is documented in security bulletin MS10-092, on a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008.
  • You create a scheduled task which has at least one trigger.
  • You disable and then enable the scheduled task.

In this scenario, duplicate triggers are generated incorrectly in the scheduled task. The duplicate triggers may cause various issues.

Most of the time, the following events are logged in the Microsoft-Windows-TaskScheduler/Operational log:
