I have these two Task Scheduler errors in SBS 2008 report. Where do I go to look at them and figure out what is wrong?

A good place to start:

Open Event Viewer> Applications and Services> Microsoft> Windows> TaskScheduler

Review the logs.

You could also check the triggers for that task in Task Scheduler.

It looks like it is trying to do something and finding parts of it missing--what are the tasks you are trying to run--can you post them here?

@David Atkin, thanks for the really clear instructions, found the logs. However, they  look basically just like what I posted. I am not seeing anything additional to share.  As for triggers, how do I find those in Task Scheduler? I have Task Scheduler open, but not sure where to look.

@lionelmm, I am not sure what tasks it is/was trying to run. How do I figure out which task was triggering it?  

Here is a "Warning" that occurred just before those two errors:

Task Scheduler failed to execute task "\Microsoft\Windows\CertificateServicesClient\UserTask" . Attempting to restart. Additional Data: Error Value: 2147943467.
