We have several of Windows task stopped working as of april 15th. When I look in the Server it says "could not start" the task. All these days It was running fine.

When i check in the eventviewer Exactly at 1:58AM there is an entry

    Accepted Solution

    This event indicates that the operation was successful. However, Group Policy security settings are not actually applied to the computer. When you view the Userenv.log file in the %systemroot%\Debug\Usermode folder you can confirm it.

    What will the Userenv.log file in the %systemroot%\Debug\Usermode folder give me? Sorry I Didnot understand.

    would probably look like this

    USERENV(b8.324) 18:18:14:894 ProcessGPORegistryPolicy: Failed to create archive file with 5
    USERENV(b8.324) 18:18:14:894 ProcessGPOList: ProcessGPORegistryPolicy failed.
    USERENV(b8.324) 18:18:14:894 ProcessGPOs: Extension Registry ProcessGroupPolicy failed, status 0x80004005.
