Hello all,

A week ago I had a big crash that screwed up some stuff on my computer, and corrupted my Norton av 2003. Upon re-installing NAV, I notice that it is not working correctly because Windows Task Scheduler has been removed! It was completely wiped out. The system folder "scheduled tasks" is missing all together, as well as the add a task wizard. My Norton will not reload properly until task scheduler is restored. I understand from reading that scheduler is actually part of internet explorer. I tried running the "repair internet explorer" (I have version 6) but it did not repair this corruption. Any help would be greatly appreciated. :confused:

Hi and welcome. Start button, run, then type mstask and hit enter.

AcaCandy,

Thanks for the info, but that didn't seem to work. The mstask icon is in the system tray, but won't do anything. :(

Before you do the below stuff try right clicking on the icon in system tray and clicking "Open" and see it it will open up.


Go to Start\Run\sfc and follow the images below. This will extract the mstask.exe(Task Scheduler Engine). I would download it to C"\Windows\System as that is where it is on my pc. You might have to rename the one you have there already to oldmstask.exe to see if the newely extracted one works. If not delete it and rename the other one back to the original name.
