    Scheduled Tasks Manager crashing

    Hello, i am running an older machine to enable me to execute some old legacy programs/systems that are on the way to be replaced. Im running XP V2002 SP2. I have an odd situation where occasionally the scheduled task process just stops working. In most situations what this means is that after restart, I have to change the passwords (yes, i know, but I cannot change this at this time) back to something as the password file becomes corrupted. Here are some observations:

    1. Restarting weekly does prolong the problem from happening
    2. Once the passwords didnt need changing
    3. long weekends will almost guarantee this problem will occur


    Can anyone point me in the right direction or give me things to consider?

    Now sometimes

    Have you checked for a *.dmp file being on the PC. If it's a BSOD that should tell you pretty accurately where the issue is coming from.
    Anything in the event log when this happens?
    You could try doing an SFC /scannow from the command line to see if that fixes anything.

    there is no BSOD. The event log just says scheduled task is down. The PC becomes unresponsive to RDC.
