I have deleted \Microsoft\Windows\SoftwareProtectionPlatform scheduled task. I deleted this Scheduled Task as it was consuming a high CPU. post that I see these errors in event way to many times. "Failed to schedule Software Protection service for restart", Error Code: 0x80070002 in the event log.

Any way to remove this?

I'm going to have to ask an unpleasant question: Is your copy of Windows genuine?

AFAIK there are really only two causes of sppsvc.exe using a lot of CPU cycles; one is malware (so a good malware scan would be a good idea) and the other is a non genuine copy of Windows or one activated with a non-genuine key.

You are seeing the errors AFTER removing the task?
Are you not able to reschedule it? It is an essential element of Windows.
