Cannot delete task from Task Monitor

Hello,

 

I run an Installation from an FMG but it failed. However this created a task in the Task Manager which I cannot delete and consequently I cannot do the installation again. It seems that the pending task is blocking any new installation attempts, however I cannot delete the task that failed. Has anybody experienced a similar issue. Is there a way to force delete this task, because it prohibits any further installation to the FG?

 

Thanks

I realise I'm 2 years late but I'll reply in case someone comes across this in the future.

First you should try selecting the task in the Task Monitor and clicking delete.
If that doesn't work, run a task repair:
diag dvm task repair <-- This command will trigger a reboot.
