    First of all, you should set automatic to Protected storage and also verified its status. Follow the procedure:

    > Go to start button and click on Run
    > Type services.msc in run box and click on ok
    > Search for Protected storage and select properties after right clicking on it
    > Choose Automatic at startup Type list
    > Now, verify your service status that should be started
    > Click on ok

    After completing the process, start your PC in safe mode and follow the procedure:

    > Go to My computer the navigate to Tools menu and select Folder option
    > Clear all the files in following area/folder
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Crypto\RSA\S-1-5-18
    > Now restart your system and run the task scheduler, process done.
