This step-by-step article describes how to schedule a program to automatically
start at a pre-determined interval.
 
Schedule the Task
-----------------
 
1. Click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then click
  double-click Scheduled Tasks.
 
2. Double-click Add Scheduled Task, and then click Next.
 
3. A list of programs that are available on your computer are displayed. If the
  program you want to schedule is in this list, click it, and then click Next.
  If the program you want to run is not in this list, click Browse to locate
  the program, click the program, and then click Open.
 
4. When you receive a suggested name for the task, you can either accept the
  default name or type another name. Click the interval you want to use for
  this task (daily, weekly, monthly, one time only, and so on). Click Next.
 
5. If you chose to schedule the task daily, weekly, monthly, or one time only,
  you receive a time or date option. Choose the date or dates, time or times
  you want to schedule the task for, and then click Next.
 
6. Type the user name and password. Make sure that the user name is in the
  domain\user format domain\user where domain is your NetBIOS domain name and
  user is the user account you want to schedule the task under. Click Next.
 
7. Click Finish to schedule the task, and then verify that the task appears in
  the Scheduled Tasks window.
 
Troubleshooting
---------------
 
 - By default, Task Scheduler logs on as the Local System account. In some
  cases, this account may not have the appropriate permissions to perform the
  scheduled task. Because of this, you must specify an account in the Scheduled
  Task Wizard. Verify that the account you specify in the wizard has sufficient
  rights to perform the task you are scheduling by logging on as that user and
  running the task manually.
 
 - You can also schedule tasks by using the "AT" (without the quotation marks)
  command. Both methods can be used to automatically schedule tasks. However,
  neither program is aware of the list of the other's list of scheduled
  programs. For example, if you schedule a batch file to run every day at
  midnight in the Scheduled Task Wizard and also with the "AT" (without the
  quotation marks) command, the command runs twice.
 
 - If you chose to schedule the task for any interval other than "one time
  only", the task continues to run indefinitely. You must manually delete the
  task to keep it from running again.
 
 - The Schedule Task Wizard does not verify the password you type for the user
  account that the process will run as. Make sure that you type the correct
  password.

Try doing this command:

SFC /SCANNOW

If that doesn't work try doing a repair option from the CDROM

First check, if the Scheduler Service is running:
right click My Computer - Manage - Services and Applications - Services and check the state of Task Scheduler (it should be Started and Automatic for Startup).

Are you an ordinary user in a domain? Then it can be, that the admin disabled task scheduling.
