Windows 7: Task Scheduler

Task Scheduler

I can not get the task scheduler to operate. I have entered two tasks, neither one will run. I can not delete these task so I can reenter them. Services show that Task Scheduler is running, but I can not turn off. All tabs are grayed out. My thinking is that if I could somehow dump the existing tasks I proceed. I get this error message when I try to schedule a task. "Transaction support within the specified resource manager is not started or was shut down due to an error (0x80071A91)"

genbol,
Now I don't know what you've done to create this situation but I can tell you how to disable TaskScheduler tasks.

Download, install and run Autoruns.exe from the SysInternals website.
When you run Autoruns, be sure to "Run as administrator".
You will find a TaskScheduler tab, uncheck anything you do not want "scheduled".

Personally, I uncheck everything that lands there because I want to control when a task runs.

No Joy, Autoruns gives me the same error message I have been getting when I tried to delete the setting in Task scheduler. "Transaction support within specified resource manager is not started or was shut down"

The program I was trying to run is Casper Backup. I have run the schedule in both XP and Vista with success.

I am running as Adminstrator

Genbol,
That program is not listed in the Application Compatibility list. Suggest you contact the manufacturer and ask if they have a Win 7 version.

I solved the problem by reloading Win7 as an upgrade. Task Scheduler works fine and it saved all my settings. Thanks
