Error 0x80070005

I have a Windows 2003 Server box that I am attempting to schedule a backup for weekly backups. When I go to set the schedule it asks me for a
username and password/password.The first set of passwords are rejected with the error message from Task Scheduler: "An error has occurred while
attempting to set task account information. The specific error is:0x80070005: Access is denied. You do not have permission to perform the
requested operation."

If I continue on, it asks for the second set of passwords (and accepts
them!) and schedules the task, which failes to run how do I fix this?

Thanks in advance

this problem was fixed by creating a new administrative account and using it. Somehow the old account got hosed. The link above prompted me to looking into the account issues.
