All my tasks in Task Scheduler are suddenly continuously repeating until I manually stop them.

I set up tasks in my task scheduler to play music as cues for my classroom.

They were working fine until this week. Now they are playing on time, but don't stop. Every song task is now continually repeating until I stop it manually. I've tried restarting the computer several times. I've looked to see if any of the tasks have changed in their settings to auto repeat, but nothing stands out as out of the ordinary. I imagine there must have been an auto Windows or Microsoft system update and it messed everything up. Any ideas on how to get the tasks to go back to normal?

    I would think that its more likely that your music player app has been set to repeat. Are you using the Windows Media Player?

    Check your task history and see if you see multiple start/stop events. You may need to enable task history in the Actions pane.

    Do you have restart enabled?
