Check the Account credentials being used for this purpose an the triggers that run.

What type of task are you running, a script? Launch a program via .exe? Windows7 is different than Win XP with the way it handles the 'Start in' location settings - a fairly common problem people run in to. Knowing what type of task to run will help because Win 7 tasks need different settings with running a .EXE vs. a Script [.PS1, .bat etc]

anumoses,
Try this.

Make a new task.

General tab:
Use same settings as the upload.bat task.

Action tab:
Program: cmd
Add arguments: /c echo hello > "%temp%\testresult.txt"

Save the task. Then run it.

Open Windows Explorer to "%temp%"

Note: %temp% folder will be the folder of the user specified under General. You may have to logon as that user then check the %temp% folder.

If that works, then the issue is probably in upload.bat

Is anudwara an admin? If so...

Open Windows Explorer.
In address field, type: %temp%

This opens the temp folder

After you run the task I showed, testresult.txt will be in the temp folder.

I get the same message for my upload.bat, but does not really perform what the batch file is supposed to perform.

NVITCommented:
Please screenshot the Action tab of the new task I mentioned.

Then, to rule out the user profile, please make the same new task as another logged on user on the same machine.

Other than that, looks like an issue w/ Windows. At that point, run sfc /scannow
