Windows Vista: Task Scheduler Engine has stopped working

    Question

  • I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium edition (SP1).  After a Windows Update back in June, I began to get the following "Task Scheduler Engine has stopped working" error pop-up windows.  I have since tried to remedy the problem in different ways, but to no avail.  I'd prefer not to have to reinstall the OS, but may have to since I haven't been able to find any online help specific to this problem.  I can also not perform certain software/application installs now, and have lost access to administrative tools, except when started in Safe Mode.  Could someone please provide a possible cause and corrective course of action?
