Corrupting Task Scheduler if you Revert to Win7
Just a FYI post if anyone has this same issue.
Recently moved back to Win7 from a Win10 trial and found that a lot of my scheduled tasks had stopped working. When I looked at the individual tasks they seemed to have gone. I had over 57 of them broken. After a bit of googling it seems the reversion process corrupts the registry entries for you tasks. There is a fairly complicated manual method of repairing however I found this site and used the free utility provided. Read the 'how to' first as the obvious way to use it will fix things in most cases but there is a more effective way of using the utility that isn't just 'select and push repair button'.
The reason I reverted was that a couple of utilities I had (some old fingerprint software) had stopped working and I was finding it a bit annoying. There just didn't seem to be anything better in Win10 to Win7 for me.
