Exception: Trying to remove node 144@1 with no iterator

I removed the offending node from the .xml file, pasted below, and was able to restart:

       <task id="144@1" status="Active" tags="@Periodic,@Finance,@WORKSTATION" uuid="25baaec7-1358-42f9-be58-b2bbe89c97f9">
               <title>QTRLY Finance Download (NET 21st)</title>
<tag>@Periodic</tag> <tag>@Finance</tag>

Still loving this program - wish I had the skill to help out!
