Windows 7: "The task image is corrupt or has been tampered with"

"The task image is corrupt or has been tampered with"

I get this message every time I open task scheduler, and there are about 80 of these messages relating to different tasks. I recently upgraded from Vista. I've searched for similar threads but none seem to have been quite the same. Any help really appreciated.

PS - I don't know if this is relevant but in msconfig/Boot Vista is still showing as the default OS, but In control panel/system and security/system the information says Windows 7 HOME PREMIUM SP1.

Where did you get your install media from?

When I bought my Acer it came installed with Vista but Windows 7 had just been released so was given free upgrade option. I think I just had to pay the postage for the installation discs. Seems genuine. Security protected product key on packaging and it activated with no trouble.

You could try this tool but read the documentation first.

Ok, just wanted to make sure it wasn't corrupted media or untrusted media.

Agreed that is does need checking.

If it was me, I'd clean install Windows 7.

Totally agree Kerry.
One could with ease spend more time trying to fix the system than just doing a Clean Install.
I personally don't have any use for Upgrades. You end up Upgrading problems also.

I avoid doing an upgrade if I can. I do see why people do them though. For some its just easier and quicker. To get Windows 10 for free you have to. Although rumor has it Microsoft is changing that. Anyway, as you say, you could spend a lot of time trying to fix an issue that a clean install will likely fix. Upgrades are prone to issues, IMHO. If I had any other ideas I would post them, I don't at this time. That error message is a new one on me.
