Repair Tasks resolves the task image is corrupt issues

Repair Tasks is a free program for the Windows operating system to resolve "the task image is corrupt" issues of the Windows Task Scheduler.

The Task Scheduler is one of the core components of the Windows operating system. Microsoft and third-party software use tasks to run programs or commands on schedule.

Task corruption is a major issue and it may not be visible right away to the user. The Task Manager throws error messages but the operating system does not.

The most common error message is "the task image is corrupt or has been tampered with".

You may resolve task corruption or tampering issues manually, but that involves editing the Windows Registry.

Repair Tasks

repair tasks

Repair Tasks automates the repair process. You run a simple program which takes care of the issue, instead of having to edit items of the Registry to resolve corruption of scheduled tasks.

Side note: It seems common that task corruption errors occur on devices that run a downgraded copy of Windows. For instance, if you have downgraded from Windows 10 to Windows 7, you may end up with 10 or more corrupt tasks.

This is caused by Windows 10 updating both registry keys and task definitions on an upgrade, but only registry keys on a downgrade so that task definitions and registry keys are not in sync anymore.

Using the program

The program requires no installation but the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0. You may run it right after downloading and unpacking it from the CodePlex website.

Please note that you may need to run the program with elevated rights. This is done with a right-click on it and selecting the "run as administrator" option from the context menu.

Click on the backup tasks button to create a backup of scheduled tasks for safety purposes.

It may also be a good idea to create a system backup or at the very least a Registry backup as Repair Tasks will make modifications to the Registry when you use the program's repair feature.

A click on scan runs a scan of all tasks, and displays those in the interface that are corrupt.

You may then hit the repair button to resolve corruption issues.

Closing Words

Repair Tasks is a useful program to resolve task corruption automatically. While you may resolve these issues manually as well for greater control over the process, using the program will speed up the process significantly.

This is noticeable especially when lots of tasks are corrupt.

    I used this last week when I discovered my win 7 machine no longer kept time. On digging in the time services were stopped. Starting them didint help, next reboot stopped even if service was set to Auto. Digging further, it turned out, as I’d upgraded this machine to Win 10 then rolled back the scheduled tasks were corrupted on reversal, a known issue apparently. This program sorted this out, and importing the standard win 7 task list worked also. Some 34 scheduled tasks that hadn’t run in over a month since the roll back.

    Thanks so much for this tool. It seems to have solved the problem. However now I am looking for the “windows 7 tasks.zip” file to fix the last 5 tasks, but I can’t find it here….?

      The Windows 7 tasks.zip file is in the downloads page on CodePlex : https://repairtasks.codeplex.com/releases/view/617575

      Awesome utility, really helped me with two customers.

        Thank you! This may be a dumb question but….what do I do with it once I download it? – It seems to just be folders & files, not something that I “run”….?

    Tried to run the repair but 113 corrupted tasks were not repaired ( all of them ) .
    I’am still on W7 , is there any chance when I upgrade to W10, the corrupted tasks will be repaired in the new Windows version ?

    Thank you.
    This appears to have solved most of my problems.
    Repaired 101 successful, but 89 failed.
    It also had a problem backing up tasks, It came up with an error 4.
    Maybe because I did not run it with elevated rights. I will try that next, if I still have issues.

    I tried the upgrade to Windows 10 and hated it due to not being able to connect to the Internet. But when I rolled it back to Windows 7, I could no longer receive any updates. After hours of researching I found my registry now corrupted.

    Sadly this has happened to too many people. Microsoft needs to be accountable and fix this free of charge. All I know for sure is I will never upgrade to Windows 10 now.

    Upgraded from Windows VISTA to Windows 7 and had the Windows Tasks Scheduler corrupted.
    Actually had 75 tasks listed with error 0X80041321.
    I ran your solution and it completely repaired everything!

    Thanks again

    Thanks Martin
    Your tool worked for me.
    I cured my system restore that was corrupted when I ran a windows repair tool from ‘Tweaking.com’ supposedly to fix a problem that I like many others are having with Windows Update in Vista.
    I have a HP DV5- T1222TX, running Vista Premium SP2, with 32Bit structure.

    Your Tasks Scheduler Tool, unlike Tweaking.com’s Windows Repair Tool, worked a treat!
    It repaired 3 registry entries in Task Scheduler regarding System Backup and Restore
    The only entry that wasn’t fixed was regarding Windows Calendar, however I can sort that out later!

    Changing the subject now-
    I’ve already done all the usual system checks and settings to get Windows Update to work, but with no success!
    Do you have any suggestions why windows Update just Hangs and won’t work even if I leave it running for days at a time?

    Thanks a heap for your Tool to fix Tasks Settings!
    You have many happy followers, including myself!

    Hi. My laptop (Win 7) has refused to do a windows backup since Windows tried to force me to upgrade to Win 10 In May 2016 (even though I didn’t want it). You say “It may also be a good idea to create a system backup or at the very least a Registry backup …”. But that’s the problem, I can’t back up. It’s a catch 22 isn’t it? Back it up before you fix the problem of not backing up. Is there a manual way for me to do a backup (to external hard drive) that doesn’t rely on Windows Task Scheduler? My computer knowledege is “dummy” level. I just want to back up my laptop! Instead I get “the task image is corrupt or has been tampered with 0x80041321”.

    Thank you very much for highlighting this utility. I had been struggling for over a year trying to figure out why I was unable to install the Connect program on a computer to link to Windows Storage Server 2008 R2. This computer was identical to others that were able to connect. After a long time, I was finally able to associate the error to the task scheduler and found this utility. It completed in less than 5 minutes what I had spent numerous hours trying to address. I am now able to connect all computers to the server. Hooray!

    Used Repair Task on my Windows 7 laptop that I have not been able to backup since 2015…due to “corrupt file”. Worked like a charm except 31 (that seems to be the special #) remain unresolved….however, allowed a backup!!! So, I want to support him and his site…finally someone admits it is due to Windows 10 being uninstalled and telling you how to fix it. I really use this laptop as a storage cabinet, since I moved on to a MacPro, which actually has an informed help # with live help…and they really try to help you instead of the Microsoft version of paying $149.00 per year for help…which by the way, they only help the first time, and then you go to the back of the line again. Will never purchase another Windows Operating System.

    Well I don’t have much confidence in a program when people say they can’t find a way to run it – nor does it help to find there is nowhere on this page that shows a place to download the thing.
    Why do these sites always have advert downloads for garbage that bears no relation to the free application being discussed? Where is the download?????
