I cannot manually start the Task Scheduler (want to have virus scan run
intermittently) - it is set to automatic however will not run.

When I try to view the event logs (application or system), I get the same
error: "1717 Interface Unknown"!

Hope someone can help uncorrupt something! I've already tried sfc /scannow
however it seemed to not find any problem system files and never asked for
the install CD.

Many thanks :)

The error message indicates a problem with the services on this
machine: "Running the New Connection Wizard May Cause System Error
1717" (http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=811142). If you cannot solve
it with the SFC you may want to do a repair reinstallation:
