    Task scheduler is causing me issues since the first of April, the only thing I can put it down to is the new build. I'd like someone to reproduce the issue for me before I roll back, just to confirm.
    My build is 14295.rs1_release.160318-1628

    The issue: Task scheduler won't work for repeating tasks

    To reproduce:
    - Open task scheduler
    - Create task, name it test
    - In the actions tab, hit new. In Program/script enter explorer.exe (Should just open file explorer). Hit OK
    - In the triggers tab, hit new. Set to daily, hit OK (time doesn't matter)
    - Press OK and create the task
    - Test it works by selecting it and pressing Run on the right hand side panel (file explorer should open)
    - Close file explorer
    - Go back to task scheduler, select the test task, and click Properties in the right hand side panel
    - In the triggers tab, select the daily trigger and hit Edit...
    - In the Advanced settings section at the bottom, tick "Repeat task every" (default timings 1 hour 1 day are fine)
    - Hit OK, then OK again to finish editing the task
    - Try to Run it again

    As soon as I add the repeating trigger to any of my tasks Run pops up the following error:
    "Task Scheduler service is not available. Task Scheduler will attempt to reconnect to it."
