    Task Scheduler Errors - SPP & other scheduled tasks


    Hi,

    Been noticing a number of errors when I open task scheduler for e.g. SVC Restart Task - The task XML contains a value that is incorrectly formatted or out of range" Other than the aforementioned task there are errors with the following:

    a) Schedule Scan
    b) Reboot
    c) Policy Install
    d) Queue Reporting
    e) sih
    f) Scheduled Start
    g) Automatic App Update

    I am a member of the WIndows Insider programme, and these errors have persisted across different builds including the latest one 10240. These were reported to MS thru the Feedback app.

    I downloaded the official ISO today and upon doing a clean install noticed the errors.

    Application Log entries read as follows:

    Error 16385 "Failed to schedule Software Protection service for re-start at 2115-07-05T14:11:34Z. Error Code: 0x80041318"

    This happens every 30 seconds or so for about 3 minutes. And starts again every time I launch an MS Office program.

    Is anybody else facing this problem? How do I solve this issue? I have tried the old trusted method of deleting the relevant registry entries and importing the task XML to no avail.

    Any help appreciated.

    Same Problem with my 4 different laptops in-place-upgraded from Windows 7SP1/8.1. It happens on one of the clean installed Windows 10 machines, too! Looking forward to more insights than the plain old registry tweaks which do not seem to work on Windows 10

    Thanks,
    Purnam

    I found that, there is something wrong with the TimeZone because when I changed the time zone to US one, it starts working and no issue at all but when I switched it back to Mumbai one ,then it starts showing errors.

    yeah no solution, I think it only affects to certain time zones. and sadly India is one of them.

    yeah it only affects to certain time zones, you can see the immediate effect in task scheduler right after changing the time zone to +05 or something else, it doesn't work with +05:30 (Mumbai, Delhi one) when it's +05:30 task scheduler raises certain errors but if it's changed to +05 or something else no error at all. it's same thing shows in the event viewer in a different way, so this is a time zone issue and you can fix certain issues by unticking Synchronization across different time zone check box in trigger tab of those that raise the errors but it's not possible to fix all errors. also if you make a new task checking "Synchronization across different time zone", it will raise the same error too. what shows in the event viewer, task scheduler errors these are all the same issue. I am not sure microsoft will fix this so soon because this doesn't affect to whole world specially in US time zones you won't even see this. so it may take few weeks or months.

    Great... all the problems gone after changing the timezone as u suggested... checked for over an hour... now back to Indian timezone... problems appearing again ....... wondering why microsoft is unaware of this problem yet??
    Anyway, thanks a lot buddy... if find any permanent solution, do post here ... thanks
