If you want to get a list of all scheduled tasks on your Windows 7 system and save it to a file, you can use the wmic.exe program as described in this tutorial:

1. Start a command line window

2. Run the following command.

C:\fyicenter>schtasks /v /query > \fyicenter\scheduled-tasks.txt

3. Open \fyicenter\scheduled-tasks.txt in Notepad. You see a list of startup programs recorded in the file, as shown in the example below:

Folder: \
TaskName               Next Status  Author  Task To Run                                       
====================== ==== ======= ======= =================================================
McAfeeLogon            N/A  Ready   McAfee  C:\PROGRA~1\COMMON~1\McAfee\Platform\McUICnt.exe 
PMTask                 N/A  Ready   N/A     C:\Program Files (x86)\ThinkPad\Utilities\PwmI...
RtHDVBg_Dolby          N/A  Running Realtek "C:\Program Files\Realtek\Audio\HDA\RAVBg64.exe"
RtHDVBg_LENOVO_MICPKEY N/A  Running Realtek "C:\Program Files\Realtek\Audio\HDA\RAVBg64.exe" 
RTKCPL                 N/A  Running Realtek "C:\Program Files\Realtek\Audio\HDA\RAVCpl64.exe" 
...                                

Keep this file scheduled-tasks.txt in a safe place, so that you can compare it at a later time to see if there are any new scheduled tasks are added in your system.
