corrupted scheduled task after renaming machine


G

After I renamed my Vista machine, Task Scheduler warned me about two invalid
tasks every time it was opened: User_Feed_Synchronization and Reminders
(should be part of Windows Calender). The two tasks were not shown even with
hidden tasks turned on, which prevented me from modifying them.

I found some trick from Internet to manually locate and edit the job file.
The old machine name was hardcoded in the job file. This must be a bug! I
used notepad to correct the machine names. Now Task Scheduler complains the
two tasks are tampered, still not showing them. Even I manually change the
two files back to original content, it still complains about tampering.

So what can I do now to correct these two tasks?

Task Scheduler is capable of doing some strange things in my opinion. I
properly scheduled a task to run at startup, confirmed that the task was
actually scheduled and rebooted. The next thing I saw was a BSOD.
The only way I could overcome the BSOD was to restore using my True
Image bootable rescue DVD.
