    Darren,

    Which scan profile did you run on the machine after deleting the scheduled task?

    The same scan I used before deleting the task.

    I have a custom scan that is the standard scan with a few other bits added in.

    You just triggered a thought in my head, which worked, so thanks for that!

    I just run a standard scan and now it shows the scheduled task is deleted.

    I seem to remember PDQ support before telling me that results can be linked to scans, although I am now entirely sure how this works.

    Yeah I figured that it would be something like that. I usually only actively use two scan profiles, Standard and Applications. I have added additional scanners to my Standard scan profile for my needs and I only use the Applications scan profile after a PDQ Deploy package runs.

    Orgs with a more complex setup may have a need for the additional scan profiles but I have seen several cases of issues like yours so that was the first thing that came to mind.

    Yes it has caught me out in the past as well, thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

    Is there a reason that the custom scan knew that there was a new scheduled task (I only set it this morning and have been using custom scan forever), but didn't know when it had been deleted?

    Sorry, I don't know the specifics of custom scans and how their data is stored since I intentionally shy away from them. Maybe someone from PDQ can help you with the specifics.
