First I got this message in the event log:

The Task Scheduler service hung on starting.


I made sure it's trying to log in as local system, and set the recovery to
restart the service on the first failure. Now I get:

The Task Scheduler service terminated with the following error:
Keyset does not exist

It just sits there at Starting. Help!


Win2K SP4, IE6sp1, all the hotfixes.

Hi Kevin,

This behavior occurs because the Protected Storage service is not started
or running on the Windows 2000-based computer.

We can refer to the article to solve the issue.

I stumbled onto the article and now everything's hunky-dory. One
question: why does the task scheduler not show its dependence on the
Protected Storage service?

Hi Kevin,

The Task Scheduler service may use the Cryptography which is needed for the
Protected Storage service.

The Protected Storage service should be enabled by default. For some
reason, the Protected Storage service is disabled, we may encounter the
issue.

Thanks for using Microsoft News Group!
