Running Windows 7 and looking to upgrade to Windows 10.
 
I have a Windows software problem and wonder whether I need to fix it before I run the upgrade. Or will running the upgrade fix it!
 
The problem is related to Task Scheduler.
 
When I go into Task Scheduler I immediately see the following message-
 
Task {FB0B0799-DF57-42EC-8928-B93187204215}: The task image is corrupt or has been tampered with.
 
I then click the OK button and see another similar message-
 
User_Feed_ Synchronisation-{2FFD9AE6-1EC4-4C03-B74B-11D64595F4C2}: The task image is corrupt or has been tampered with.
 
So I click on the OK button again and see a similar message. And the whole process is repeated for a further 53 (FIFTY-THREE) tasks, all stating that "The task image is corrupt or has been tampered with."
 
Any advice would be gratefully received.

 You need to fix the problem before upgrading.  Upgrading will not fix the problem.  

 

 I would open an administrator command prompt and issue this command:  sfc /scannow .  If that doesn't fix it, download MalwareBytes and do a scan with it.

 

 Good luck.


Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.

On my reading of Post #1 this computer is running Win 7 and the problems appear in the Win 7 Task scheduler, so it is a Win 7 problem.

 

However, if Niweg's suggestion to use sfc /scannow fails to resolve the problem and if Malwarebytes shows any signs of unfixed infection post back for more instructions, this will almost certainly involve starting a new topic in 'Am I infected ?'

 

But post back and say how you get on with Niweg's suggestions  before doing anything else.

Chris, Niweg, this somewhat happens to me on at least one of three computers, I'm also W7.  I'm thinking somewhere along the way, a formerly scheduled task was "wiped away" without the use of the Task Scheduler.  By carefully weeding through my Task Scheduler, I was able to clear almost all such messages.

[Right now, I'm re-weeding Task Scheduler, will post back if successful, 'cause it IS much like thread opener's situation.]

Thanks for you kind attention to my problem, guys.

 

I've run the  sfc /scannow scan and received the following message-

"Windows resource protection did not find any integrity violations"

 

I've updated my Malwarebytes software and run the scan and there were no threats identified.

Do you have CCleaner installed  ??

 

If not go HERE

 

download the FREE version.

 

Install it using the default procedure.....BUT>>>UNTICK THE "INSTALL GOOGLE CHROME"

 

When installed, allow ccleaner to run...select TOOLS.....then select STARTUP

 

Then select SCHEDULED TASKS.......it will list all scheduled tasks.....then on the right hand side select Advanced Mode....hold down the CTrl button on your keyboard and tick all the tasks that need to be deleted......and then select DELETE.

 

or....you can delete each one individually if you like.

Many thanks for the help, Condobloke.

 

How do I know which tasks "need to be deleted?"

good question that......

 

You can either take a screenshot, paste it here and either myself or someone else will take a look and advise you....

 

or...

 

You can fly by the seat of your pants !!........be sure you have a restore point to go back to !!! 

 

  1. Open System by clicking the Start button , right-clicking Computer, and then clicking Properties.
  2. In the left pane, click System protection. ...
  3. Click the System Protection tab, and then click Create.
  4. In the System Protection dialog box, type a description, and then click Create.

or better still, do you have a backup on an external hdd ?

 

delete whatever has been corrupted

There was a further column on the left which I couldn't get in the picture above entitled "Enabled." All the tasks emboldened in the picture are enabled and all the tasks not emboldened errr.... aren't enabled....

Hi peterfoster,

 

Did you upgrade to win 10 and roll back to win 7 sometime in the past?,

 

The reason I ask is because your symptoms are identical to that scenario, if this is the case have a read of this,

 

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/610681/task-scheduler-trashed-after-you-revert-to-win7-from-win10/

 

The program works a dream, saves editing every corruption.

 

Good luck

 

Hedge

Windows 10 "upgraded itself" but when it asked me to accept the licencing agreement, I refused (because I wasn't ready to upgrade) and the upgrade "cancelled itself" and I reverted to Windows 7.

Does that count as a "roll back" meaning that I need to run the programme you flagged?

That's a good question 

 

When does the licence agreement appear at the start or the end of the upgrade (I can't remember) if it is almost last thing (half an hour later)then yes I would class that as a rollback,

 

By the sound of things I would run the repair tasks any way (just my opinion)

 

Its just to much of a coincidence, I had 40+ faults on mine

 

Hedge 

 

 

Edit:- When you declined did it take while (half an hour to an hour) to get back to normal.

It worked on the upgrade for a long while (an hour or two?) before the licencing option arose. When I declined it did take a while to revert to Windows 7.

 

I'll run the scheduler repair programme in the morning.

Hi peterfoster,

 

Yes, That was what I was trying to ask (badly) it means the update was in place before before the EULA and when you declined it rolled back to win 7.

 

So yes repairtasks will sort this out for you,

 

Good luck and keep us posted with your results

 

Hedge

 

On a side note, please make a system image backup before you upgrade, then if for any reason you need to go back, reinstall the image,

do not use the rollback option (available for 30 days) because we now know that's not the best idea, and you're not limited to 30 days.

 

 

Edit:- For grammar
