SYMPTOMS

If a task has been scheduled in Task Scheduler with a user account and password, you can change the switches for the task, and then click Cancel in the password box that appears when you apply the change. When you do this, the task still runs.

You might expect that no changes will be made to the task when you click Cancel. This issue may cause a potential security risk.
