    Hi,
    I am getting this error message, when I open up TASK SCHEDULER
    The Task Image is corrupted, or has been tampered with.
    I have read this formula, in one of the forums and that is.
    That I go into regedit, and follow this tree.
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\CURRENTVERSION\SCHEDULE\TASKS\SYSTEMRESTORE\SR
    I SHOULD DELETE THAT TASK, AND THAT WILL RECTIFY THE ERROR.
    Can someone tell me if that works, and if I do delete that task how do I re-create it again?
    I am very afraid of messing about in REGEDIT, as I do not have a lot of experience.
    What will happen to my current restore points, that I have?
    Do I delete them as well and start again, if so how do I delete them?
    If I switch off system Restore and then switch it back on again, does that delete all the system restore points?
    To be honest I am not confident that my current restore points will work work anyway, with getting that error message.
    If I do get problems in the future, I would like System Resore to fall back on.
    I would appreciate the help
    Thanks
