Hi all,

I need to be able to run a scheduled program from a limited user account but as administrator.
Much like right clicking and then clicking on run as and giving it the administrator details.
In this case however I need the program to run as administrator with out me having to go to the machine and physically starting the program.
Any suggestions?

If you edit the scheduled task, in the "Run As" box select "NT Authority\System". That way it should run as a system account and won't need a password.
