When I run,

EXEC master.dbo.xp_sqlagent_proxy_account N'SET',

I'm getting

'The system cannot find the path specified.'

If I run,

'EXEC master.dbo.xp_sqlagent_proxy_account N'GET'

Domain                                                      Username                                                                                                                        
Domain1                                                    Password

(1 row(s) affected)

The proxy account is set to a user in an old domain... and i can't seem to change it - to any user in any domain... via Enterprise Manager or Query Analyser.
