    The "Failed to schedule Software Protection service" error


    Another person with the "Failed to schedule Software Protection service for re-start at 2115-08-05T01:22:57Z. Error Code: 0x80070005." error...

    AGAIN...

    I say "again" because this issue is plastered all over the internet. I've searched and searched and have tried many things, but I still get this error every 30 seconds in my event log.

    I've tried deleting and re-importing the 3 tasks from the SoftwareProtectionPlatform folder in Task Scheduler... I've exported/imported the tasks as they are, I've deleted and imported copies from a month and a half ago from my own system (before this issue started), and I deleted and imported copies from someone on the internet who was nice enough to provide their own copies. It didn't help.

    I checked the registry to make sure that the last traces of the tasks were being cleaned up...

    I checked that sppsvc is running under the "Network Service" account.

    I've checked ACLs on all sorts of folders... And registry keys...

    Oh, you're going to tell me to do "sfc /scannow" ... well that command doesn't work for reasons unknown. I posted about that a year or two ago, no resolution.

    Try running, in admin cmd prompt-

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    Reboot, then run sfc /scannow again.

    If dism says it cannot find or download the needed files, see this thread-

    SFC SCANNOW and DISM RESTOREHEALTH - Repair Corrupt Files

    Other than that I don't know.
