    Task scheduler won't start

    I have the problem whare the task scheduler in services is set to automatice but fails to start and log in is greyed out. I have tried many solutions and none have worked. However I did find a solution and it was down to my own error. I used a program called DISMPP-10 and disabled the Timebroker service. It appears that it stopped me being able to optimise my SSD because the task scheduler would not start. Once I set the service to manual I could once again optimise my SSD and in services Task scheduler was running again.

    I know there is a way to disable the Timebroker service in the registry so if you have done this and are having problems with the Task scheduler, it might help to restore it to manual.


    A value of 3 is manual

    A value of 4 is disabled

  2. Task Scheduler service will not start.

    Thank you for updating us. If Task Scheduler will not start, we suggest that you restart it. The service might be disabled that's why the task will not run. Follow the steps below to troubleshoot Task Scheduler.

    • Click Start menu.
    • Type Services in the Start Search box.
    • Right-Click Services, and select Run as Administrator.
    • If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password or click
    • Right-click the Task Scheduler Service and select Restart.
    And have you tried running the System File Checker scan as an Administrator. For more information check this
    article. You can also perform DISM after performing SFC.
