Thank you for your post. If you are running the task from the Task Administrator or off of a trigger the task will run in whatever session has the Event Monitor (AMEM.exe process). The task will try to start the Event Monitor as the user specified in the Logon Properties. So you will want to look at what user AMEM is running under as well as the Logon properties of the task when running the task and getting the error.
