I keep getting a message that " window task scheduler has stopped working " (not exact words) and that windows will look for and report solutions.
what does this mean and how could this be addressed.

More about : task scheduler engine

It may help to know the exact error, but is it saying that task scheduler has stopped working or that a scheduled task has stopped? I've never seen the former but set up scheduled tasks to run all the time and have some familiarity with them.

Thank you for your response.

Yes the error message says the task scheduler engine has stopped working.....and that windows will close the application to look for and report solutions.

Interestingly the system now hangs and freezes since the start of the error message........such that the cursor's arrow just stays right in the middle of the screen unresponsive.

I've been unable to use the system since yesterday because of this....I'll appreciate suggestions that could lead to a solution.

Thanks

Well, what i know it could be a virus or trojan you might want to do a few antivirus scans . It is a hidden file though...

This may be an old post but I found it when I had the same problem. It didn't help. I found that I had removed a PUP (supposedly non-malware) that ran some adware. I removed the malware but it left a folder named Bench in my root directory. Checked the ...system\tasks folder and found two tasks for "bench". Deleted them and renamed the bench folder (just in case I was wrong) and I no longer get the fault. Do we really think malware will cooperate when we remove it in control panel? Seems the pup would attempt to launch itself every so often Since I had removed the program TSE faulted out. MS needs to give us answers when this happens instead of just going through some motions.

So frustrating when we have problems and the solution is always some tech crap. might as well say throw your comp away and get a new one. (Which an equally douchey answer) Whats the problem here? Everyone is expected to goof around in the back room of their computer hoping not to break EVERYTHING. The answer needs to be a link or something as simple, "Here, press this button and it will fix your problem." if you have to, ask for more information so you can create said button, fine. But no exceptions! asking regular people to be comp geeks is bs, I don't even half want to know how to do that. Geeks forcing the world to bow to them. ...and don't start with some monkey-brained crap about how its my problem and you are trying to help, I know this is a computer cultural problem and the various software companies really deserve all the ire, They get it, but again, this is a cultural problem, every geek needs to get it through their head that helping is helping and asking people to be geeks or get bent is not helpful, its perpetuating the problem.

Youre not nice for giving geek info, you're lazy and self-important. Its like a surgeon describing how to cut yourself open in medical jargon then acting like he did you a favor. Volunteer your time to do the surgery or don't pretend you're helping. geek instructions work half the time, cause theyre incomplete or assume you speak geek or have done similar things before so its a wild goose chase for half of the people. help or don't and don't act like describing how to put a splint in your chest is anything but hurting as much as you're helping. ugh!
