What is current setup. The best way to have a script run under the system account is to run the script at computer startup via Group Policy, what does the script do?

But I would like it to run under the system account even when I run it under a local admin account and start the script myself.

Download PSEXEC and then run the following from a command line

psexec.exe -i -s wscript.exe C:\YourScript.VBS

This will run the script under the Local System Account.
