    Re: Task Scheduler in windows 7 has been corrupted

    This issue can be fixed by recreating the task scheduler. Before making any changes to your registry back it up. Once done, click on "Start" button and then type "regedit.exe" in the search box. Now hit enter button on your keyboard. It can ask for the confirmation so provide the permission and navigate to "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\Current Version\Schedule key" and delete its sub keys. You have completed all the important procedure so save all the changes and then exit out of the registry editor and then check whether it works for you or not.
