Winter,

I've verified this on Win2K SP2.  Interesting. 

I use Perl for system programming on Windows platforms,
particularly for IR and forensics.  The
Win32::TaskScheduler module will completely enumerate
even the hidden (attrib +h) tasks...

I mention this, as I'm putting together a full-blown IR
application that is made up of my scripts, and can be
run from a CD.  This will be included in my upcoming book.

Ive found that you can use attrib.exe on files in
%windir%\tasks,
particularly with the +h attribute. "Attrib.exe +h *"
will hide all
scheduled tasks from AT, Scheduled Tasks (both Control
Panel + explorer) =
and
"dir %windir%\tasks" (unless you use dir /a or have it
set as such in
%dircmd%).  Browsing %windir%\tasks on the cmd line
with "dir /a" is the
only way ive been able to detect jobs that have been
hidden this way. =
They
run as scheduled. Tested on 2000 SP3 & XP SP1.
