Viewing the Task Scheduler Log
For the most part, you're taking the Task Scheduler's word for it that work is being done. Would you trust an employee to get everything done without at least checking up on him or her every once in a while? No, you wouldn't. And you can check up on Task Scheduler, too, by viewing the Task Scheduler Log.

Go to Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Scheduled Tasks. Then go to Advanced, View Log. You'll find a lengthy text file that details every recent action of the Task Scheduler, the time and dates the tasks were run, and whether Task Scheduler was able to complete the actions.
