    Getting error "the scheduled task no longer exists" in windows 7

    I have a HP notebook which have Windows 7 as an operating system. When I go to start the task scheduler, I get this message "the selected task "{0}" no longer exists. to see the current task, click refresh" So I go ahead and click refresh, and get the same error message. How can I resolve this issue? Can I see the task scheduler if so then tell me how to overcome this.
