Windows XP SP3 Task Scheduler fails to add new task (error 0x80070005) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to schedule a task on a Windows XP SP3 workstation, one that already has multiple scheduled tasks running without issue.  The login account has Administrator privileges and has a login password.  The Tasks folder does not have Read-Only set.

    The error I get when I try to save the completely filled-out task is: 0x80070005 Access Denied.

    Can someone point me at a solution to this issue?
