Windows 7: Display All Running Tasks fails with Task Image is Corrupt ...

Display All Running Tasks fails with Task Image is Corrupt ...

My Windows 7-64 Home Premium had multiple corrupted tasks after trying Windows 10 & reverting to Windows 7, months ago. I did not realize that it had corrupted the Task Scheduler. I found Dijji's Repair Tasks, which did a beautiful and easy job of cleaning up all the corrupted tasks. Now when I click on Display All Running Tasks, I get, "The Task Image is Corrupt or has been tampered with." At that point, the Task Scheduler Stops. If I click on Display All Running Tasks again, it displays, "Task Scheduler is not available..." I tried to contact Dijji about the problem, but cannot find a way to reach him. The PC seems to run just fine otherwise, but I would like to correct this error. I have run an elevated sfc /scannow & chkdsk /r and both run error free. MS Malicious Software Removal Tool, MSE Complete Scan, & MalwareBytes Premium scans run error free. Rogue Killer also ran error free. Does anyone have any ideas as to how I can correct this problem, short of a factory restore?

As Roy suggested, a repair install will reinstall win7 and keep your data and programs, but after Win 10 the register will have a lot of trash.
A clean install takes a lot more time, but is the best solution. Clean Install Windows 7 - Windows 7 Help Forums

Any way, (Clean or Repair install) backup your data on an external drive.
You will have to install all the updates. Use SP2 and the security only updates.

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? ...
