Scheduled Task “The task image is corrupt or has been tampered with”

When opening task scheduler I was faced with the error “Task User_Feed_Synchronization-{20EECAD6-F054-4C21-B0F6-EC6DA-99BD2C8}: The task image is corrupt or has been tampered with.”

and

“Task ServerCeipAssistant: The task image is corrupt or has been tampered with.”

There are a number of locations the corrupt task can be stored:

C:\windows\system32\tasks\

And

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Schedule\TaskCache\Tree\Microsoft

Looking at the data stored in these two locations it should be enough information to delete and recreate the task.
