    Task Scheduler Will Not Start


    Hey everyone,

    Have an issue with task scheduler not stating which is causing issues with say Nvidia Geforce Experience not starting as it requires it to update.

    When I try to start it from services I get that error.

    I have tried resetting it back to the default registry from the file on these forums, tried change from auto to manual via registry, tried changing the boot options to only launch windows default services, made sure the dependent services are all running, sfc /scannow found nothing either.

    Done a Malwarebytes scan and now running an AV scan with Avira.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Looks to have reset a few things and the previously greyed out sections are enabled but the service still wont start and get the same error.

    Thanks though!
