I had to assist a customer of mine today who had allowed his Win7 system to upgrade to Win10
The PC was suffering frequent total lockups with no obvious cause - other than the upgrade.
There were no event log clues or crash dumps - so hunt the bug or downgrade back to Win7 ??
I downgraded him back to Win7 and used GRC Never10 to keep him there.
Fixed a few corrupted applications and all was well
Except for one thing - the Task Scheduler had masses of corrupted task error messages
Apparently the revert from Win10 back to Win7 is known to cause this problem
I found a special utility that repairs the Win7 Task Scheduler Library
The reviews look really good - might be worth a look if you encounter this issue

Hi DougCuk,


Yes,I've used it and it certainly does what it says on the tin.


As a side note my machine was faster before the repair so had to go into task scheduler to stop/disable some tasks


But other than that a beautifully written utility.
