    Thank you Dalchina for your suport and good advice. Tweaking.com's Repair tool worked, the scheduler is back in business. Have to re-do some settings (e.g. Firefox instead of Edge) but that's peanuts.

    Keep up the good work.

    I think I'm having a similar problem as you. But the tweaking.com repair tool didn't work. Do you remember what repairs you specifed?

    I just had the same issue and read all the posts below to no avail. To cut a long story short here is the fix that worked for me ( no idea why this worked but it did)

    1) I created a new version of the task in the Apple folder in the Task Scheduler Library (rather than my own folder)
    2) I could run this manually within the Task Scheduler app without the error
    3) I exported the task from the Apple folder then imported it back into "My" folder in the Task Scheduler Library
    4) Now I could manually run the task in my folder without any problems.

    It makes no sense to me but it sure beats having to do a reinstall and all that entails. Worth 2 minutes of your time to try that's for sure.

    I will have to wait until tomorrow at 8 am to see if it runs at its scheduled time but I fully expect it to. If not I'll update this post.

    Update : Scheduler task ran normally so I guess the fix worked

    That didn't work either This is so frustrating...

    I was able to get something working though! I've been doing 'Create Task...', but then I tried 'Create Basic Task...' and for whatever reason that worked. I only wanted my task to run when I was connected to a specific network (which the basic task doesn't do), but I think I'm done poking it.

    Sorry to hear that it didn't work for you . It is so aggravating and stupid that such a basic OS function not only can break but be so hard to diagnose and fix.....

    I kept getting the "Task Scheduler service is not available" message but found that it was only on specific tasks, so I started comparing task settings. It turned out that the problem for me was caused by a having a network condition for a network that no longer existed. I disabled that condition and then all the tasks started working again.

    Changing/removing some task conditions might be worth a shot for other users having this issue. It looks like some conditions can cause the "not available" message to show up if they fail.

    Hi, try this: go to:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Schedule
    Find the DWORD called start
    Is it 2?

    Set a system restore point/back up the registry before making changes

    Also this (read article carefully and check):
    you may also disable (or change) the startup process on the SCHEDULE service with the following:
    PSEXEC -i -s CMD
    (this opens a CMD prompt with the "NT Authority\SYSTEM" account)
    SC CONFIG SCHEDULE start= auto (changes start to Automatic)

    From:
    Task Scheduler Service (Schedule) cannot be stopped in Windows 2008 R1 +
    how to do that im clueless
