Failed to schedule Software Protection service for re-start at 2119-10-19T18:07:58Z. Error Code: 0x80041316

Our Windows Server 2012 Essentials is getting evenvwr poluted with the error message bellow and attached every 30 seconds. I've done a lot of research but nothing worked so far, this is what I tried:
Check the NETWORK SERVICE permissions on C:\Windows\System32\Tasks\Microsoft\Windows (it has FULL CONTROL)

checked services and its dependencies and ensure they are running and have startup mode = automatic

checked windows license with slmgr /ato

started and stopped sppsvc service with net stop sppsvc/ net start sppsvc

This is our domain controller so I can't reinstall Windows - Any help please

HI

we can backup the DC then try below solution .

Recreate the task:

Net stop SPPSVC

Rename the 3 files from C:\Windows\System32\Tasks\Microsoft\Windows\SoftwareProtectionPlatform

SvcRestartTask

SvcRestartTaskLogon

SvcRestartTaskNetwork

From another working machine copy the 3 files or extract the files from the wse 2012 DVD\ISO \sources folder using the install.wim file as your source

Renamed the extension of the file to .xml

imported the tasks to SoftwareProtectionPlatform (Task Scheduler Library > Microsoft > Windows > SoftwareProtectionPlatform)

Run net start sppsvc

In my case the user "Network services" needed write permission to the folder "C:\Windows\System32\Tasks\Microsoft\Windows\SoftwareProtectionPlatform"
It seem it has to recreate the task called "SvcRestartTask".
