WMC Tasks Missing in Task Scheduler

Hello,

The tasks for WMC are missing in Task Scheduler, although the actual files are in System32\Tasks and even in the registry. When I click on Media Center folder within Task Scheduler, I get errors something about task {0} missing. As a result, I'm unable to download TV guide data.

Please advise.

Welcome,

Is this a new problem, if so just use system restore.

and old problem

type the letters cmd in search. Do not hit enter, right click and run as administrator.
In cmd type sfc /scannow.

If neither work do a repair install, using your Windows DVD.

If I do a repair install, would I have to re-install other programs?

If you do a repair install, if there are no surprises, you do not reinstall your programs.

Well, HP didn't give me the original DVD -- only the recovery discs that I paid separately for. So I guess I'll have to live with it since I don't wanna do a factory reset.

Michael,

Many Computer Mfg, will send you a OEM DVD of your operating system for a nominal charge, about $25.00. Give HP a call. The DVD will be a good investment, you will be able to install the system again or make repairs, now or in the future.

TY for your kind words and rep, truly appreciated.

I have it, but it's in a compressed form which only works with their recovery software.

Would you be interested in installing again, but you will have to reinstall programs. We can transfer and save everything else; desktop, favorites etc?
