SBS 2008 Deleted Report / Notification but still receiving them

So here's an odd one that I cannot seem to figure out.


Have a SBS 2008 with the 2 default reports set on.  The Summary Network Report which is sent daily and the Detailed Network Report sent every Sunday.

I created a new report a few months ago that would email me daily.  I created the report through the report tab in the SBS console.  Checked the box I wanted in the report (Security), than told it to email me daily.  It worked great for about 2 months.  

Now I don't want the report anymore so I opened up the SBS console and went to the reports tab and clicked on the report I don't want anymore and deleted it.  The problem is it's been 3 days now and I'm still getting the report emailed to me daily even though the report isn't listed in the reports tab of the SBS console.  

Any ideas would be great on how to fix this.

Have you restarted the server?
In taskmanager is that report task still there?

I did restart the server (first thing I did, should have mentioned that).  I also couldn't find anything that stood out in task manager and I also checked the scheduled task section as well with no luck.



I did fix it though:

What I did was recreate the same report in the SBS console and added me to get a daily email (set it for the same time as I did previously).  I let that go for a day to see if I would now get (2) reports of the same or just (1).  That night I got only one of them so that morning I went into the reporting tab.  Unchecked the box to email me, and then I deleted the report.  That's what seemed to fix it.
