MMC Has Detected An Error In A Snap In

I keep getting the following error when I click on "Properties" in Task Scheduler.

How do I fix it?

Task Scheduler - MMC Snap In Error - File Not Found


MMC has detected an error in a snapin & will unload it.


The system cannot find the file specified.

I tried SFC /scannow from an Admin Command Prompt. It reported that it found errors and fixed all of them.

The problem still persists.

What can I try now?

Thanx,

Hello Randy,

You could try doing a system restore using a restore point dated before you got this error to see if may be able to fix it for you.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Randy,
1) do me a favor and keep running sfc /scannow until it reports that no problems were found. I forget the actual wording.

2) WIN | type TASKSCHD.MSC | ENTER
where WIN is the key with the wavy flag.

Does that work?

Task Scheduler runs just fine until I select an item from the list & click on "Properties". That's when it gives me the error.

Thanx,

I tried System Restore. No luck.

Thanx,

P.S. I'm not having this problem on my Desktop PC. Only on my Notebook.

Hello,

Make a backup of Registry Registry - Backup and Restore the Download this File and apply it SnapIn.reg and reboot your System and see if that works

Go to Control panel > User Account and Family Safety there Create a new User account and try under that account and see if you have the same problem, Fix a corrupted user profile

Hope this helps,
Captain
