Why doesn't the "Scheduled Tasks" share show up when browing to servers via UNC?

When browsing to servers via UNC, the "Scheduled Tasks" share does not show up anymore.  It used to show up, but now the window is just blank when browsing to \\<servername>.  I am a member of the Domain Admins group, and I've confirmed that I do have administrative privileges on the servers.  I've tried this from 3 workstations... "Scheduled Tasks" doesn't show up on 2 of them, on one of them it does.  I also asked another domain admin, and she sees the "Scheduled Tasks" share from her workstation.

What could it be??

Compaq_Engineer- If \\servername\c$\windows\tasks will allow me to run the tasks on the remote machine, then I guess I can just use that.  I guess I was under the impression that when browsing to the Tasks folder directly it just showed you the .job files and wouldn't allow you to work with them as scheduled tasks on the remote machine.  I'd really like to know why it doesn't show up when browsing to \\servername though...

speshalyst- thanks, but if you read my question you'd realize that the article you referenced just restates what I'm trying to do (which isn't working).
