I get this error message when trying to set up a scheduled task by hand.  I've seen a couple refs from Google, best suggestion from JSI FAQ does not fix.  Anyone got a clue?

That ref has nothing to do with winxp and IE 6.  I can do a google search.  But it yields nothing useful.

If this problem occured recently why dont you do system restore and check if that would help

Sunray, my initial comment says the JSI FAQ did not help.

This is an XP Pro ugrade from XP HE.  The machine is brand new.

I just confirmed from my comment whether you had followed the same JSI faq

I just checked this again today and I was able to set up the tasks.  I wonder if the JSI solution didn't time out long enough for the task schedule scavenger to do its thing.

If no objections within 72 hrs, I'm going to close this thread with no resolution needed.
