Task Recovery Error - Task XML contains unexpected node

May 22 at 7:54 PM
Thank you Dijji for creating this repair utility. It successfully repaired almost all of my task schedule errors. However, i still have 11 Task Schedule issues which are unresolved. See below. All of them appear to be Microsoft Tasks, and i've already tried to repair using Windows7 Tasks.zip, but these tasks do not appear to be included in the Windows7 Tasks.zip package. These 11 tasks exist in my computer's C:\Windows\System32\Tasks\Microsoft\Windows folder. Any suggestions for how I would go about repairing these 11 tasks so that they install correctly on my Windows 7 system?

Note: I did find this thread which appears to discuss a similar issue.

Wondering if any of the 11 Task errors on my system are part of Windows 7?
I had tried upgrading to Windows 10 at some time in the past, and then reverted back to Windows 7....so perhaps these tasks were added at that time?

All 11 of them are tasks installed by Windows 10 that have no counterpart in Windows 7. You can safely ignore them. They are exactly those described in the documentation page you reference.
