When I go to Utilities | Task Scheduler I get a message that says, "Task Scheduler service is not running".
When I try to open View | Action Palette I get a message that says, "Task Scheduler service is not running".
OS user privilege limitation
The Account logged on will need a Power user or Admin privilege on the PC to be able to use this feature.
If using Windows Vista and this issue occurs, right-click on TOAD.EXE and choose 'Run as Administrator'. This will also address the issue.
