server 2008 can't end scheduled task "currently running 0x41301"

Right click - end task, does nothing.  Can't restart task scheduler scheduler service on 2008 server.

How can I stop this "running"  task without rebooting the server?  It's not actually doing anything - the process it runs is a simple batch file.
Windows Server 2008

As mentioned, this is Server 2008, which is completely different than Server 2003.

For one, you cannot restart the Task SCheduler service - the option is grayed out in Services.msc.

There is no advanced option in the new Task Scheduler.  As mentioned in the article you link, the task is really not running, so using Task Manager is not an option since there is not a process running that is linked to the Scheduled Task.

Thanks.

Are you sure there is not an option to stop Task Scheduler within the Windows 2008 Server Task scheduler console? I am not in front of a server but I remember there being one there but I could be mistaken

Well you Schedule service should allow you to restart the service so, check this out I have had this issue before and this fixed it

You could have a GPO that is stopping the service from being restarted as well.

This might be a permissions issue. Are you logged in as domain administrator? Check the task ans see who the owner is.
