Windows 7: "Display all running tasks" in Task Scheduler not working

09 Mar 2016   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
"Display all running tasks" in Task Scheduler not working

Hi all

My task scheduler seems to work just fine but when I click on "Display all running tasks" I always get the message "Task scheduler service is not available. Task scheduler will attempt to reconnect to it". The service is running normally.

After looking up in various sites about similar problems I tried two things:
1) Run sfc /scannow from an elevated command prompt. No errors found
2) Run "Fix my task scheduler" tool, after creating a system restore point. Told me it found and fixed 7 errors, but apparently not this one.

Time to pull up ProcessMonitor. In the attachment is the snapshot of the event (clicking "Display..." in Task Scheduler). I can see there are a few "name not found" but here ends my "expertise" .

Obviously I'm not willing to take any big step (like refreshing the pc) for such a trivial matter. It just bugs me...

Thanks in advance for your suggestions

I cannot find Restore Points created "daily" with Task Scheduler.
Task Scheduler is setup to create restore points every day at midnight and at startup. It indicates that it runs successfully but those points do not show up in System Restore.
