Solved Task Scheduler Snap-in error (Windows 7)

Custom / System name
December 21, 2015 at 11:14:21
Specs: Windows 7 Ultimate sp1/32bit, Pentium 4_2.5GHz / 1.5 GB
When access the properties of a task in the task scheduler I get a box the pop up that says unhandled exception.... see here: http://s18.postimg.org/9lhakcprt/Un...

After press ok: I get snap-in unavailable as seen hear: http://s23.postimg.org/h9wcotarf/Sn...

What I tried so far: ran system restore, ran sfc /scannow and even did a repair install of the os. The issue remains. Last time I had this issue was when I was a newie to windows 7 and using ccleaner and had "II Log Files" checked At that time it cause the same error. At that time I just did a clean install of the os. After that I never have ccleaner clean that log I googled around an found that the Task Scheduler has issues with it. So I don't know what is causing it this time. Hope you can help. Thanks

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it onto your Desktop. If your default download location is not the Desktop, drag it out of it's location onto the Desktop.

If we have to run Farbar more than once, refer this SS.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
Press Scan button.
It will make a log (FRST.txt) on the Desktop.
The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt).
The logs are large, upload them using Zippy ( No account/registration needed ) or upload to a site of your choosing. Give us the links please.

Works for Windows 7 as well. All works as it should with task scheduler. Did the step at the bottom of the page that involved the registry. Exported the key and and created a restore point before editing. Hope this helps others.
