JSI Tip 7904. How do I delete a corrupt AT job from the scheduler?

If the SchedLgU.txt file contains a message similar to:

Atn.job () date time ** WARNING **
     unable to load task.
     The specific error is:
     0x8007000d: The data is invalid.
Where n is the job ID, and running AT \\ComputerName n /DELETE returns The AT job doesn't exist, and the Scheduled Tasks GUI doesn't show the job, use the following at a CMD.EXE prompt:

del /q %SystemRoot%\Tasks\ATn.job
