    If you go to the controllpanel and check under Scheduled Tasks is F-secure scanning added here? or is this just blank?

    Could you try and for example sett it to do a scan Weekly and wednesday. To see if it will work on selected time tommorrow? And make sure the computer is on at this time. There isent any point of doing a full scan every day, Sence F-secure have a Realtime scanner. Once every week or month should be enough.


    What i was asking about is the scheduled taks that you should find under Start - Controllpanel.

    try to remove the task and recreate it using the F-Secure GUI.


    Additionaly I see "Ad-Aware" on your system and other duplicate tasks.

    AdAware is a kind of malwarescanner as well and is competing for ressources with F-Secure!

    Your skype also seems to have problems...

    A different user on the internet solved thisproblem by restoring a rescue point of Windows from an earlier date and that fixed the issue.
    But I have found something else from the internet, after following the instruction, try to set a new sheduled task in IS2011 (maybe with a different time, just to test).
    Here is the guide:
    To troubleshoot this issue, I would like to propose the following suggestions.

    1. Commonly Task Scheduler task image is located in : C:\Windows\System32\Tasks, please delete related corrupted image in this folder and see if the issue occurs.

    2. Delete related registry item in the following location.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Schedule\TaskCache\Tasks

    Please locate to related folder with the same ID displayed on the error message, and delete this item.

    Note: Pay attention to back up your registry before doing any modification.

    Meanwhile, you can also visit the following website on similar issue first.
