Run the Task Manager, by opening the Run dialog (Windows + R) and typing:

taskschd.msc /s

You can view each scheduled task in the Center top pane. The list of tasks will change depending on the folder selected in the left pane.

When you select a task in the center top pane, the lower pane will show the user account in the General Tab.

It is likely one or more of these tasks are using an account that no longer exists. In the right pane, you can delete the task that is no longer valid.

There could be multiple tasks that require removal, so we suggest you look at all tasks.
