    Unable to create the task scheduler

    Windows 8 x64 OS, now unable to create a basic task from Task Scheduler.
    Typed all args, click the Finish button in the last step, an error:

    "Transaction support within the specified file system resource manager is not started or was shut down due to an error
    I have fixed it base on the URL below, but not luck.
    You cannot change the settings for a file backup operation or use Windows Task Scheduler to change the defrag schedule in Windows Vista

    How to fix it.
    Thank you

    You should check the event log and see if there are specific error id's

Bad tasks in task scheduler
I upgraded from Win 7 to Win 8. When I open up task scheduler I receive several messages saying "The selected task "taskname" no longer exists". How do I remove these dead tasks? I assume they are left over somehow from Win 7.
