Scheduled task delete code. Need a condition to match before deletion.

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
)

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

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
