Task scheduler suddenly stops triggering until every Sunday at a specific time

Had an issue with a Server 2008 box with multiple tasks, come Monday and all the tasks have not completed; even though last result is 0x0. Turns out the issue is related to the¬†Windows Live Social Object Extractor Engine updating it’s definitions. Even though this task was set to run next on a Tuesday, disabling/removing Windows Live Essentials 2011 fixed the issue.¬†
