I would like to create a scheduled task to reboot my XP PC. I am trying to apply the instructions from the following link but , but I can not figure out where to apply the parameters. could it be that the field is missing?

You just add the parameters in the same field as you specify the command. The task scheduler just takes the entire contents of the field.

So you'd have:

shutdown.exe /parameter1 value1 ....
