XP Home Schedule Task no password - need access to Local Security Setting

I am trying to schedule tasks in XP Home, but they will not run with out a password.
In XP PRO I disable "blank passwors" in Local security/....../Security options

Is there a way to do this in XP HOME.

Or is there another way I can schedule jobs with out the use of a user acct password

shasunder - i found something at http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm
i'll see if that works


If yo ueblieve so then good luck im just going with microsoft information if you find it please let me know.

Im pretty sure kellys corner doesnt hold anything relevant to this, try a search under scheduled and youll get no results.

Why nto create an account with the simple purpose of running these tasks and use that as the users name and password one that never expires so that you can run these without interfering with your security
