Unhappy

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


I'm trying to run Windows Backup (Win7 Home Premium, 64-bit) for the first time but I'm prevented from doing so by the popup of this error message:

"Windows Backup
The task image is corrupt or has been tampered with. (0x80041321)"

I ran sfc /scannow from an elevated prompt and was told that everything is fine with my system.

I Googled this error message and was directed to the Windows Task Scheduler, where I get the following error messages, one after the other:

Task
User_Feed_Synchronization-{9D66D6F9-C99D-44A4-B4FD-08F3FC89396F}: The task image is corrupt or has been tampered with.

Task
WinSAT: The task image is corrupt or has been tampered with.

Task
DispatchRecoveryTasks: The task image is corrupt or has been tampered with.

Task
ValidationTaskDeadline: The task image is corrupt or has been tampered with.

Task
ValidationTask: The task image is corrupt or has been tampered with.

Task
AutomaticBackup: The task image is corrupt or has been tampered with.

Before I go blindly around deleting tasks, can someone please help fix this problem, so I don't mess up my system, and allow me to run Windows Backup? Thank you.
