The Windows API for the scheduler is the ITaskScheduler COM object. Using it isn't so easy. (Don't know if they have improved this in .NET, maybe).

The ITaskScheduler COM object has a series of methods like,

ITaskScheduler::NewWorkItem
The NewWorkItem method creates a new work item, allocating space for the work item and retrieving its address

ITaskScheduler::Delete
The Delete method deletes a task

ITaskScheduler::Enum
The Enum method retrieves a pointer to an OLE enumerator object that enumerates the tasks in the current task folder

The microsoft MSDN document covers this is more detail and give code examples. (not sure about VB examples however).
See,

I think a partial answer was given so maybe partial points are justified?
