Recently, I reinstalled Windows XP and the task scheduler looks alright. Then
I copied the task from the previous system directly into the
C:\Windows\Tasks. Now all my task is missing the front two tabs. I should
normally have 4 tabs (Task, Schedule, Settings and Security). Now I only
have 2 tabs (Settings and Security).
What can I do to enable the front two tabs again? Even newly created tabs
have only the two tabs. The newly created task would still run, but I cannot
update them anymore. Any advice?

Sounds odd , check the permissions on the tasks folder.
This article will aid you in checking NTFS permissions in XP.
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;308418

Please see if your user account has the correct permissions both on that
folder and on the system, under computer management.
( right click my computer , click manage , open up local users and groups ,
then locate your user account under users ,check if you are a member of the
administrators group. )

You could also try renaming the TASKS folder , I say rename , not delete.
See if the new tasks appear as normal. ( Since I don't know if this will
work.)

I do not have the security tab on my Tasks folder. I only have the General
Tab. Although, I do see the security tab on the System and on Windows folder.
The strange thing is that although I am in the administrators group, when I
do a Effective Permissions on the Windows folder, it says I do not have any
access. I'll add my name to the Windows permission with full control and see
if I can propagate this to all the subfolders. Not much experience on ACL,
so, hope my system can still startup.

I've done the rename part, and the system automatically creates a new Tasks
folder. But the problem persist.

Thank you for your input. If you have any more ideas, please do let me know.
My alternative is to use AT, which works (Urgh!!) or to resinstall again
(double urgh!!).

If I read your post correctly there's more than one folder with this issue.

I've included a helpful article , but what I'd suggest is taking ownership
of your local disk , on the local disk, go to the sec tab , then click
advanced , then owner tab.

Click on the administrators group , check "replace owner on subcontainers
and objects" and click apply , sit back and wait for a prompt to replace
permissions...
This should now re-apply the correct permissions for the administrators
group to your entire drive. ( Or you could just go to any folder that gives
you grief and do the same. )

P.S Sorry I excluded this from the other post.
From what I can see on the Tasks folder should only have the general tab.

The ownership steps I mentioned in my other post may help resolve the
effective permissions issue.

For completeness, just wanna inform you that my problem is resolved. Not
exactly sure which action did the trick, but I strongly believe that it was
resolved when I tried to assign a default account for the AT command.
