Task Scheduler service fail to start at reboot...

Hi,
My Windows 2000 server recently is not starting the Task Scheduler service
after a reboot. I created a batch file to do a net start "Task Scheduler" in
the Recovery tab | First failure: | Run a program on the Task
Schedulre service properties, but it did not help. Just found out from MS
Knowledgebase that you can not run a .bat or .cmd on that Recovery option. It
says to call Microsoft for support but it will cost me.

Is there a work around for this?

I didn't have this problem before. Please help!

What do you see when you open a Command Prompt and run
this command:

net start "Task Scheduler"

DOS window and it starts the service. It works if I run it manually, however
I can not use .bat or .cmd in the Recover option.

You write "I can not use .bat or .cmd in the Recover option."
Why not?

Also: What does the Event Viewer report?

That's the problem. Event viewer doesn't say anything why Task Scheduler
failed to start after a reboot.

The event log files may be corrupt. Control Panel|Administrative
Tools|Services|Event Log Service|General, set the "Startup Type:" to
"Disabled" restart the pc, then delete (or move) the corrupt *.evt file(s)
from %systemroot%\system32\config then set the Event Log Service "Startup
Type:" back to "Automatic", restart for effect.

Pegasus: I've read an article in MS Knowledgebase that .bat and .cmd does not
work with Run a Program in the Recover option. That explain why the service
is not starting. My .cmd script (net start "Task Scheduler) works manually.
Also, I don't see any information in the event viewer regarding Task
Scheduler.

Dave: I don't think the Event log file is corrupt cause it's logging other
stuff. I just don't see anything pertaining to Task Scheduler service.
