Task scheduler not working?

I can't defrag, and can't schedule any tasks. These are screenshots of my error messages. What can I do about finding "remote computer"? I only have this one!

Hi,

Check that the Task Scheduler service is running:

Click Start >> Type services.msc >> Press Enter

Look for Task Scheduler... is it running
