    0x2 error on basic task


    On all my computers I always add a basic task to update Defender definitions every four hours. Couldn't be a more basic task. On my new computer I noticed the task had never run. Deleted and recreated the task EXACTLY the same as on every other computer and it shows 0x2 under Last Run Time. This tells me it doesn't have permission to run the task.

    I am at my wits end on this as I said its a basic task I have used for years but now I get this error.

    Task Scheduler Error


    When I access Task Scheduler, an error appears that says SqmUpload_S-1-5-21......... no longer exists. To see the current tasks, click Refresh. However, the same message appears when I click Refresh. I can close the message and it appears the Task Scheduler is OK. A person on the Microsoft boards gave me several steps to follow beginning with booting into Safe Mode. However, I received a message when I accessed Task Scheduler that it doesn't function in Safe Mode.
    I did not feel safe following their additional suggestions at that point as I am not that adept at such endeavors. Has anyone else encountered this error and/or found a simple solution? I feel it is caused by some remnant leftover from Windows 7 during the upgrade but this is pure conjecture on my behalf.

    Windows Defender Default Scheduled Task - Looking For Information


    @Eagle51
    I was updated to Ver 1703 with the hope of a fix from Microsoft. Well Windows defender continues to not run. It shows the 0x2 error as it did under ver 1607. The other 3 auto maintenance tasks run correctly.

    Next step is the change the User Account in the task to my User name.

    How MS can offer an AV that does not perform regular scans as promised is beyond me. This is a major bug in my opinion.
