You cannot reinstall Task Manager - it is part of Windows.

Go to Admin Tools, Task Scheduler (this is not Task Manager). Does Task Scheduler open?  If it does, delete the task and start again.

If Task Scheduler does not open, start by running System File Checker.  Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator and run SFC /SCANNOW twice. Allow to complete, close out, and shut down the computer. Start up and test again.

Run scans with your antivirus and antimalware programs.
If still no help, run a Repair Install.

This should not affect your personal data or installed programs, but a backup first is always a good idea.

Try this

1. Startup in safe mode see if it works

2. Logon as another user account on this computer does that work?

3. run msconfig
    in Services tab "hide all Microsoft services"  then disable all others.
    in startup tab disable all
    restart computer
    does it work?  If it does you have a conflicting service are startup program

It's important you clarify what is not working... is it Task Manager or is it Task Scheduler?  Two very different features - see below.
Task Manager and Task SchedulerIt's important to provide accurate information so that we can provide an accurate solution.

So then you have a significant operating system problem.

Back up the critical data and email on your computer and then:

1. Run Windows 7 Repair Install as suggested above. You need the Windows 7 DVD.   OR
2. Use the recovery partition to reinstall Windows fresh. This means reloading everything but can solve many niggling issues all at once.

Do you see it here>Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Administrative Tools
Any registry changes?
If you have set a program t run?
There is a list of items you can check here
Quote:
On the left side, select the top item, Task Scheduler (Local).
You see the Task Scheduler Summary. It provides a review of your tasks, including which tasks have run and which are active.
On the left side, choose Task Scheduler Library.
Tasks are organized into folders. The Task Scheduler Library folder is the “root folder” for all tasks.
http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/how-to-open-windows-task-scheduler.html
Triggers tab
Actions tab.
Conditions tab.
Settings tab.
History tab.
I just get the impression your running a CMD that is now over ridden by some previous schedule
 and wondered if you could just access scheduler in Control Panel?
