The Scheduled Tasks log (SchedLgU.txt), enables you to view more information about the status of a scheduled task. This log file for Scheduled Tasks is stored in the Windows folder, where it is used to record the activity of scheduled tasks. You can use the log file to determine why a task might have stopped, by viewing errors that may have encountered the task or to check on the status of a task. Usually, you can search the Microsoft knowledge base http://support.microsoft.com/search/ with the error codes you are encountering and find fixes and workarounds for common errors.
