Windows 7: New entry in Event Viewer; critical

New entry in Event Viewer; critical

I got to reviewing my Event Viewer and I discovered this error

"Task Scheduler service failed to load tasks at service startup. Additional Data: Error Value: 2147549183"
Event ID: 413

So here is what I have done and checked:
* Event starts on 3-12-2014 and occurs every time I boot the computer
* I have another computer, exact parts, exact version of Windows, no error no event ID 413
* I checked my install logs and nothing was installed on or around the date of 3-12-2014
* I checked my Microsoft updates log and no updates on either system installed around date
* Both systems have the exact Microsoft updates per my logs
* I did find this thread talking about the same thing, but I cannot access the "Stop service" part
Task Scheduler service failed to load tasks at service startup. Additional Data: Error Value: 2147549183.
* I attached a pic of the error
* I compared "AutoRuns" on both systems and all looks well and the same

Both systems are a Windows 7 Home, 64-bit, same mobo (Asus P8P67 Pro ver 3.0), 8GB of memory on both systems, both have SSD's of the same manufacturer, PSU on both is 650W; again everything is the same.

So what do you guys think is going on and how do I fix this?

Hello AirPower4ever,

Nice username just to let you know.

On Autoruns when you open it, is there some entries that are highlighted yellow? If so, please right-click them and then delete them.

You mentioned it happens every time you boot-up your computer and this seems to me, as if a third-party application is causing problems. Please perform a clean boot mode and let me know if it still appears in Event Viewer.

Hopefully this will resolve this issue.

Thank you,

Be in control of what is allowed to run in your Task Scheduler. These are not mysteries decided by some invisible god, more likely spyware or unneeded updating tasks which also spy. Type in Start Search box and then open Scheduler, click on Library in left hand list, examine each task to see if it is one you want on your PC or not. If not rightclick to delete or suspend the task. If in doubt post back screenshots.

@Vinny - Both computers in AutoRuns have no yellow items. I checked and both have the same entries per tab in AutoRuns. I did the "Clean start" same error after reboot. Attached are the pics in the event viewer right after reboot with services shut off as per above.

@greg - Looked in there and compared each item against both systems. Both are completely identical. I went one by one and per folder. Any that need to be expanded I did and checked. I also looked at the Security options for each, both systems identical.

Thank you to both of you for the quick response. I attached pics from the bad computer and one from the good computer

The point was to determine what these tasks are because most dont' need to be run.

Step 15 in Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 show how to resolve repeat errors by googling the text and identifying number to see how others have resolved them. Someone here could do it for you but then you wouldn't be learning how to troubleshoot these issues or more about your PC.

Hello AirPower4Ever,

What anti-virus do you have installed on your computer? Can you post a screenshot also of your System and Application logs Please run a full scan with Malwarebytes, a trusted anti-malware product: https://www.malwarebytes.org/

Thank you,

@Vinny - Both systems are using Avira Free. I run Avira and Malwarebyte's once a week, then once a month Kaspersky. I have done this for years and all my systems show nothing. I will get the logs in a bit, gotta go put a fire out.

@greg - I have already done that (see link), but many have a different code than specifically mine; 2147549183. Or they have a task mentioned which is definitely none of my programs ever loaded. Looks like someone here also tried and no final fix.
Task scheduler error - Windows 7 Help Forums

The two systems run like normal, no BSOD's or flickering of any kind; they run just fine. I just saw the one critical on the one system. Strange how the other is not having the issue.

These two systems are not used on a daily basis, they are HTPC's that connect to a NAS box. Basically, turn on, launch app and watch movies or TV shows. I would say they come on about 2-3 times a week for about 2-4 hours so each time; they are not used much compared to my other systems in the home. So these two do not get a lot of work on them at all. Just an FYI

Hello AirPower4ever,

Let's hope you manage to put the fire out. Can you try following the step below.

1. Click start and type in services.
2. Right-click it and select run as administrator.
3. Navigate down the page to Task Scheduler.
4. Right-click it and select restart.

Try running System File Checker SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Thank you,

Please post a screenshot of your Task Scheduler showing all Library listings. I doubt if you need any of them. Even if you did you can suspend each to see which is causing the problem.
