Cannot create new tasks in Task Scheduler.

Hi

I am getting an error when trying to create new tasks. When creating one, I get as far as the last screen and when I click finish, up pops the error. Attached is a screen shot.

The OS is SBS 2003 with SP2 installed

Thanks in advance

Now close the CMD prompt and reboot.

I also saw this solution....
"1. Copy / Paste the following to a StopStartTaskScheduler.bat file:

@echo off
net stop "Net Logon"
net stop "Windows Time"
net stop "Task Scheduler"
net start "Windows Time"
net start "Net Logon"
net start "Task Scheduler"
@ping -n 901 127.0.0.1>nul
@echo You may set the account information for the 'new task' and schedule additional tasks.

2. Open a CMD prompt.

3. Type StopStartTaskScheduler.bat and press Enter.

4. When you see the You may set the account information for the 'new task' and schedule additional tasks message, in 15 minutes, the Task Scheduler scavenger tool, which start 10 minutes after the Task Scheduler service is started, should have freed enough buffer memory.

NOTE: You may have to press OK in a dialog that tells you that some scheduled tasks have been missed.

NOTE: When the script starts the Task Scheduler, it is normal to receive:

The requested service has already been started.
More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 2182.
