To be it seems to be corrupt job causing task scheduler to take indefinite time for opening . Please perform the below mentioned steps to verify :-

Step 1 : Restart the computer in safe mode (the Task Scheduler service does not run in safe mode),
Step 2 : In the /Windows/System32/Tasks folder, rename the file for the task, or after taking backup delete the file/s .
Step 3: Restart the system in normal mode and then redefine the task.
