Scan status: Task image is corrupt


Been using the PDQ software for a while and never really got round to investigating the few PCs displaying this error message:

"The task image is corrupt or has been tampered with. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80041321)"

Details: HResult -2147216607, Scan Profile Standard, Scanner Windows Task Scheduler, Service Version, Type System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException

Online Help:
