    downgrade from 10 to 7 problems

    Laptop i3 4 gig ram win 7. Thought I would do the free upgrade to win 10. After a few days I realised I prefered win 7 so did the downgrade to win7. All seemed fine but then I noticed Task Scheduler was all over the place many messages saying Task image is corrupt and others. Once clicked (71 of them) these messages go away but you can not create a new task. I ran a little free prog called 'repair Tasks' this sorted about half of them but I still have a unusable TS. I have looked a the Microsoft Site but no repairs there. I do not have the win 7 disc although I do have a win 7'copy' from another effort some time ago.
    Is a reinstall of w7 the only way.
    thanks

    The laptop works fine in every other way.

    Looks like a lot of people have had this exact problem.

    This thread in Microsoft's own forums seems to have a solution (aug 19th) that has worked for a number of people..

    Don't believe everything you think.

    I will be looking into this a bit later on. I do like the 'rename files in each folder' I will give update soon. Shame Microsoft don't step in as you mentioned I am not on my own.
    Thanks fink for input.

    I have had a try with the suggestions and for me it did not work. I hope soon MS will recognise the problem and do the decent thing. I will read on but it looks difficult to solve.
    thanks

    Tried using a fix from the above MS site and got this message
    Cannot copy task file 'C\:Windows\System32\Tasks\Fujitsu\DeskUpdate' the target file
    'C:\Users\name\AppData\Local\Temp\DeskUpdate is a directory not a file.
    repair terminated by unexpected error 'access to path'
    'C:\Users\name\AppData\Local\Temp\DeskUpdate is denied

    interesting
