Hi,

Scheduled task delete code. Need a condition to match before deletion.
If the Run of the schedule matches this
"C:\Program Files\Sophos\Sophos Anti-Virus\BackgroundScanClient.exe"
Then delete
Except the scan name as 'infected scan"
The "Infected scan" will also have the same path. So exclude it as it does now but delete just the scans that may have this path.
"C:\Program Files\Sophos\Sophos Anti-Virus\BackgroundScanClient.exe"
Regards
Sharath
@echo off

set rpt=c:\TaskReport.txt

set TaskNOTToDelete=Infected scan

for /f %%a in (c:\computers16.txt) do call :process %%a

goto :eof

 

:process

set pc=%1

ping %pc% -n 1 >nul

if errorlevel 1 (

  echo Could not connect to %pc%

  goto :eof

)

echo Checking %pc%>>%rpt%

for /f "tokens=1,*" %%s in ('schtasks /query /s \\%pc% /fo list^|find /i "TaskName:"') do (

  echo.     Evaluating %%s %%t>>%rpt%

  if /i "%%t" == "%TaskNOTToDelete%" goto :eof

  echo.     Removing %%t from %pc%>>%rpt%

  schtasks /delete /s \\%pc% /tn "%%t" /f

)

My first observation is: Do the spaces either side of the '==' make a difference as in:

      if /i "%%t" == "%TaskNOTToDelete%" goto :eof

Should this be:

      if /i "%%t"=="%TaskNOTToDelete%" goto :eof
