Task Scheduler Not Running Server 2008 R2

Task Scheduler is not throwing any errors or writing issues to event logs yet the tasks do not run at scheduled times.  I have all jobs running as Administrator set to run even if not logged in.  This is a virtual machine and unfortunatly i do not have a snapshot and this appears to have started Thursday night after windows updates so I can't rollback.  The tasks will run manually but not per schedule automatically.  What could be causing this to happen?

check if group policy at domain level or local group policy has been applied;

Deny log on as a batch job

This policy setting determines which accounts are prevented from logging on by using a batch-queue tool, the feature in Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 that is used to schedule and start jobs automatically one or more times in the future. The ability to log on by using a batch-queue tool is needed for any accounts that are used to start scheduled jobs by means of the Task Scheduler.

Possible values:
 User-defined list of accounts
 Not Defined

I had to contact MS to get this resolved due to a bug in Server 2008.  The bug actually has not been fixed yet and won't be until Windows Server 8 (http://blogs.technet.com/b/csstwplatform/archive/2011/03/31/error-msg-appears-quot-the-user-account-does-not-have-permission-to-view-task-history-on-this-computer-quot-when-we-switch-between-tasks-rapidly-from-the-task-scheduler-library.aspx), but by deleting all my task from registry and then importing them back into task scheduler I'm now working fine.

Please close this question as self resolved.
