If you create another scheduled task will it work ?
Open scheduled tasks go to "advanced" menu select "Stop using task Scheduler" and then go again to the "advanced" menu and choose "Start using task Scheduler"
Also check if in the advanced" menu you have "Continue task Scheduler" option ,then it was paused !

Hope that helps!!!

I'm talking about the menu on top of the window (just like you see in the picture i have already selected the "Advanced" menu , next to "Help" menu ("Stop using task Scheduler" is marked blue ) !
Unless ... you can't see that menu !
