Need a domain admin account that does not allow login

Is there a way to create a domain admin account that is valid and authorized, but does not have the ability to login?
What I am needing is an account such as this to run nightly batch jobs unattended... but I don't want this user ID to be able to actually log in and work.
I've toyed with the idea of creating a login script that would log them back off immediately, but would like to know if there is a better way.

Thanks.

Open the user Profile
Click the 'Profile' Tab
Click 'Log on To...'
Add a name of some computer that does not and will not ever exist on your network (1 added here will do the trick, anything will work e.g SOMECOMPUTER)
This will give that user only the ability to logon to that computer, which in turn does not exist.
