Task Scheduler errorRunning Windows 7 Professional SP-1,  Task Scheduler has started to display an error when launched (see screenshot).  This just started, and I don't know what system change may have produced it.  Searching for references to this task in Windows/System32/Tasks, I don't find a matching task.  Looking in Regedit  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Schedule\TaskCache\Tasks   I don't find a matching task.  Please advise.

Do you have Office 2010/2007 installed?  It might be related to your RSS feeds....it's not a default task built into Windows that I can see...

Thank you for your comment.  I have Office 2007, and there is an RSS feed in Outlook.

Thank you.  I read that thread, but I can't duplicate the solution, because there is no task in the Task Library with the name User_Feed_Synchronization.  I also searched the system drive for all files containing reference to User_Feed_Synchronization and none were found.

Sorry -- I overlooked the entry User_Feed_Synchronization in System 32/Tasks.  Deleting that stopped the error.
