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...
