GPO - reboot computers

What did I do wrong?

I wanted all computers to reboot at 5:05 on Friday, a particular week.

I created a GPO for a reboot and applied it to the domain, reboot happened as planned.  I then removed the Policy from the domain, it still resides in Group Policy Objects.

Here is what I did not expect....  Next Friday at 5:05, all computers reboot again.  Do I need a GPO to cancel the previous scheduled reboot?  I changed the time of the reboot in the GPO, will that do anything?

so I assume you are using a scheduled task within GP prefs in the GPO?

if yes, change the create/update to a delete

You are correct, using update in Scheduled Tasks.  Will changing the time apply the change?

Changing the time and applying it to the domain?
