When you use the AT /Delete /Yes command to delete many AT jobs at the same time, some of the AT jobs may not be deleted.
This problem may occur if the Task Scheduler service was processing the AT job that was not deleted. When the Task Scheduler processes an AT job, the job is locked. As a result, the AT command cannot delete it, depending on the timing. Typically, this problem occurs when there are several hundreds of AT jobs scheduled.
