Windows 2008 - TaskScheduler hanging

Hi In Windows 2008 Server (Virtual Machine), When I open task Scheduler, it is opening and saying loading. but it s taking forever to show the tasks. Even from command prompt I tried C;\>schtasks /query .  and it is showing nothing, just stays there. I did reboot of server but no luck.
Please assist, its very impacting.

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.
