I has created a CustomTimerJob to update my list but i can't disable this timerjob because the title is disable, I can't click or do anything. I can't not find it in job definition but it automatically run every minute. Please help me.

If it is attached to a list you will want to include that as so:

Get-SPTimerJob | where { $ -like "*<List_JOB_NAME>*" } |ft id,name

Not just the Job Name, I find the post is not explicit enough.

You can retract the solution from Visual Studio or run command:

MOSS 2007 [CREDITS]: Stsadm

If you would like to delete Sharepoint Timer Job Definitions follow these steps
- In Central Administration Home Page click Operations tab
- Then click Timer Job Definitions link
- In this page go to the job whick you want to delete
- While pointing your mouse over this job note down the GUID shown in status bar
- Then go stsadm and run this command
stsadm.exe -o deleteconfigurationobject -id

SharePoint 2010: Powershell

#Searching listing and find timer job to delete.We need an id.
Get-SPTimerJob | where { $ -like "*<your search criteria>*" } |ft id,name

#Set job to a variable
$job = Get-SPTimerJob -id <GUID>

#And delete it.

NOTE: Do not remove without making sure the $job you got is what you need to delete!

I can't find job id, job title is disable. I deleted the old project, so can't find the guid ID – quanhieu Nov 25 '12 at 10:40
Run Get-SPTimerJob | where { $ -like "*<your search criteria>*" } |ft id,name to get GUID for Timer Job – Arsalan Adam Khatri Nov 25 '12 at 10:43
