The task image is corrupt with Wavepad 4.52

Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -

I am using Windows Vista as my Operating System. I have made a very good edit in my system especially in the calendar and the task features. Now when I tried to view my scheduled tasks, an error appeared on the screen saying: “The task image is corrupt or has been tampered with wavepadShakeIcon”. I know this is something that is very much connected to my scheduled task which is the NCH Swift Sound. When I edit this task, will it affect Wavepad? I am using a genuine Wavepad Version 4.52. Please advice. Thanks.

Try out the following steps and see if you will solve the problem:

  • On your computer, you will need to click on Start, and then in the start search type regedit.exe and then press Enter.
  • In case you  get a consent prompt, you will just need click on Yes.
  • After that, you will need to browse through the following location: HKLMSOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrent VersionSchedule key and then delete its subkeys.
  • Once you have done that, you will need to save the changes that you have made and then exit out of the registry editor.

 Thereafter check if Task Scheduler works fine.

Hello Elizabeth,

You can follow below steps in order to resolve the issue.

–      This can be fixed by deleting the actual XML task while which contains the task settings.

–      After deleting, run the task scheduler again and see if the error is gone.

–      Then import the version of the task back to the scheduler ( Non-corrupted version).

All you have to do is to locate the task file.

You can locate it by following the below steps:

1)    Go to the c drive, windows, System32 and tasks. The path would be c:Windowssystem32tasks.

2)    Locate the actual XML file which is causing the problem and delete it.

Make sure to back it up to any other drive before you perform the above steps. Once, it is backed up then you can re-run the schedule to see if the error has gone.

Hope this helps!
