Access denied error when trying to create a crawl schedule in SharePoint 2010

When you receive an access denied while cre­at­ing a new crawl sched­ule this just might be the solu­tion.

On the search serv­er the local user WSS_WPG needs read & write priv­i­leges on the Tasks fold­er. This fold­er resides in the win­dows sys­tem fold­er. I my case a reset of IIS was unnec­es­sary.
