This is a Common Problem with Task Schedular

Please follow the following techniques to solve the problem with Task Schedular:

Ronnie Vernon - Microsoft Technet said:
Open the Task Scheduler.

On the View Menu, select the 'Show Hidden Tasks' option.

In the left side menu, select 'Task Scheduler Library'.

In the Center section, right click the 'User_Feed_Synchronization' task and select Delete.

Exit the Task Scheduler.

Next, select Start / Accessories. Right click 'Command Prompt' and select the 'Run As Administrator' option.

Click 'Continue' on the UAC prompt.

In the command window, type the following command.
msfeedssync enable


Press ENTER.

This command will replace and refresh the 'User_Feed_Synchronization' task.
This will not affect the RSS Feeds you are subscribed to.

Original Source = Vista Task Scheduler task image is corrup


Hope This Helps,
Josh

To find the User feed you have to click View> Show hidden Tasks

And then in the left hand pane click Task Schedular Library and you should find a Task labeled User Synchronization Feed
