Locate Corrupted Task in Windows Task Scheduler

When I try to perform some operations in Windows Task Scheduler I get a generic "Task Scheduler service is not available.  Verify that the service is running." or "The task image is corrupt or has been tampered with."

This is a Windows 7 system that was never upgraded to Windows 10.  The Scheduler is running.  There are dozens of tasks running.  I believe the problem is that one or more of the tasks is corrupted.

Is there someway to determine which tasks are corrupted?  I looked through all the statuses and there was nothing that said 'Corrupted'.

I don't want to have to drop and restart all the tasks if I don't have to.

Thanks.

No, no method will tell you which one is corrupted. You can only export all - delete all - re-import all and see which one fails on re-importing and re-create that one manually.
There's a script that exports all tasks: https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/scriptcenter/Repair-CorruptedTampered-c8d2e975
