Hi guys, I am getting many error messages (one after the other) when I start up my task schedules:




After all these error messages go away the task scheduler looks like this:


I have tried to do this fix:

1. Navigate to C:\Windows\System32\Tasks\Microsoft\Windows\PerfTrack and copy BackgroundConfigSurveyor to a backup location.

2. Open regedit, find HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Schedule\TaskCache\Tree\Microsoft\Windows\PerfTrack, right click it and export it to a backup location. Do the same for HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Schedule\TaskCache\Plain. If something goes wrong, you can import these files to undo your changes.

3. Go back to the ...\PerfTrack registry key and look at the BackgroundConfigSurveyor key inside it. It should contain a string called Id. The value for Id should be a big hexadecimal number inside curly braces. Find the key with the same name as this value inside ...\TaskCache\Plain and delete it.

4. Delete the BackgroundConfigSurveyor key inside ...\PerfTrack

5. Open Task Scheduler and the error should be gone.


Now, to rebuild the task:

Inside Task Scheduler, navigate to Task Scheduler Library\Microsoft\Windows\PerfTrack. There should be no tasks in the center pane.

1. Right click the empty space in the center pane and choose Import Task...

2. In the Open dialog, change XML files (*.xml) in the bottom right to All files (*.*)

3. Find and import the BackgroundConfigSurveyor file you backed up at the beginning.

4. A properties window should come up. Click OK.
However I can't find HKLM in the registry (step 2). My registry looks like this:

Even a search doesn't bring it up



This is really stumping me. Thanks for any help.
