Folks,
In trying to open Task Scheduler I get a message "This task object is either unsupported or invalid."
I ran sfc/scannow and I have attached the log file CBS.log. How do I repair this problem (Task Scheduler Services are running)?
I am running Win 10/64

You will find many hints on the web, mainly this problem occurs when single tasks are corrupted.
You can use scripts to backup your tasks, then delete them and see if it works with no tasks in the queue and then repopulate the tasks one by one until you find the culprit.
Sounds like a lot of work? It sure IS a lot of work.

So unless you already guessed this would be the possible solution and also feel ready for this task, I would ask you to use your latest image backup to return to a working state. If you have one, of course.

I do have a valid image as of 10/1/16. How would I search for these "scripts" you are referring to?
