RunAs NT Authority interactive

I have a batch file that I need to run every 10 minutes with Scheduled Tasks which is fine. I've done that. The problem is that because this runs every 10 minutes I want it run hidden so users don't see this black window popping up on screen all the time. However, a part of this calls out to a VBS file to display a message box should there be a problem. This message box I obviously want shown to the user. So how can I run the batch file hidden, but show the msgbox should it need to display?

Running the scheduled task as NT AUTHORITY\System doesn't work because the msg box also runs hidden and using the AT command to make the NT AUTHORITY\System account interactive doesn't work because then the batch file isn't hidden.

what u can do is set the task to run interactively, but while executing the commands in the batch file, add the -s switch to make it run silently. i don't know the contents of ur batch file that's why i can't say if it'll work for all of them.

I tried creating the task with the path to the batch file followed by a -s and it doesn't run silently.

Ahhh.... I got it. Calling the batch file from this VBScript makes the batch file invisible but displays the msgbox if need be.

Const NORMAL_WINDOW = 0
Dim oShell
Set oShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
oShell.ShellExecute "status.bat", , , , NORMAL_WINDOW
Set oShell = Nothing

Let me know if you guys want points for trying though I ended up with my own solution.

Thanks for your help.
