    Empty folder in task scheduler


    I open task scheduler as administrator. I navigate to Microsoft, Windows, RAC. The task is empty. The RAC folder is System32 is there, but empty as well. The reason I looked is that my Reliability Monitor is no longer an option in Security and Maintenance.
    I've been having some issues with Security and Maintenance. Malwarebytes Premium and AVAST free should show up under Security. It doesn't. Only UAC. I'm not sure if there is a connection but something is wrong....
    I've attached the screenshot of the empty task scheduler RAC folder.

    It is a mystery of the gods why it has had that behavior for a very long time. RAC = Reliability Monitor Data Collection. RAC is mainly used for troubleshooting or attempting to push your system to its limits. How to work with Windows 10’s Reliability Monitor | CIO RAC does come in handy when managing SSD's.

    I don't think it is connected. None of my clean installed 10 Pro systems have a RAC folder in task scheduler at all. Did you upgrade from Windows 7 by any chance? The folder could have been left when the upgrade deleted the task. MS keep changing how it works - Vista had RacAgent, Windows 7 had RacTask, after that Reliability Monitor data just comes from event logs I believe.

    Can you post a couple of screen prints of security and maintenance with the dropdowns expanded so we can see exactly what things are missing. Like this:

    Try also opening Reliability monitor directly if it isn't seen in System and Maintenance and see if it works (search for "reliability" then pick "View reliability history")

    Ok. I fixed my Security Center issue and I can now get to the Reliabilty Monitor. Not sure what caused the issue but something was obviously corrupted. I rebuilt WBEM repository using http://support.eset.com/kb217/?locale=en_US

    I didn't take screenshots but before I fixed the Security Center, it was missing much of what your screenshot shows. Now it is showing similar to yours. I checked the RAC folder is now gone but the entry in task scheduler remains and is blank. No problem though at this point.
    Thanks for you replies!

    I upgraded from Windows 7 and can confirm that I have an empty RAC folder in task scheduler. I have none of the problems reported in the OP.
