Windows 7: Task Scheduler is corrupt

Task Scheduler is corrupt

I upgraded to Windows 10 (on a PC), but I was unhappy with it and downgraded again to Windows 7.
After a few days I got the error 'GWXUX has stopped working'. I believe GWXUX is to do with the Win 10 upgrade. Thinking I could fix it, I tried to launch Task Scheduler.

I now get a succession of error messages along the lines of:
'Task {FD779DF0-4047-4AFF-95E5-E267E2669CB0}: The task image is corrupt or has been tampered with.'
Press OK and I get a similar message with some other entry between the {} brackets.

The computer remains usable, but I then can't get rid of the error messages or close Task Scheduler, except by re-booting.

Help to repair Task Scheduler would be appreciated.

Many thanks, UNI! Brilliant program. It repaired 41 out of 46 tasks; not sure what to do about the 5 remaining, but I can live with that.

I would run a System File Check (SFC) to see if it can find and fix issues.

My long list of Task Scheduler corrupt or tampered with tasks!!
Hi. Below are the errors found on starting Task Scheduler, and at the bottom are the ones I have deleted in System32\Tasks. I think many are leftovers from my Windows 10 trial as I do not remember any problems with Task Scheduler prior to the change. Can anyone confirm if these are W10 related? ...
