Solution:
1. Change attributes of Tasks folder by typing this in a command prompt:
attrib -s c:\windows\tasks
2. Restart Windows Explorer.
3. Add the wss_wpg account with read/write permissions to the permissions of the folder
4. Change the attributes of the Tasks folder back to a system folder:
attrib +s c:\windows\tasks
