How can I run Spybot on all the computers in my domain at a scheduled time?

I'm running SBS 2003 SP2

How can I run Spybot on all the computers in my domain at scheduled time? ... or manually if I wanted to?  I guess some group policy???

"C:\Program Files\Spybot - Search & Destroy\SDUpdate.exe"  /autoupdate /autoclose
"C:\Program Files\Spybot - Search & Destroy\SpybotSD.exe" /AUTOCHECK /AUTOFIX /AUTOCLOSE

I know these 2 commands the top 1 will autoupdate and the 2nd will run the check and fix the problem.  I just do not want to have to go to every computer and manually do this or add it to scheduled task on every computer.

Only way is via task scheduler?
You could manually schedule it in each computer.
Or you could use the AT command to remotely schedule the task.

If you are going to take that route why don't you use something "enterprise class" like trend micro.
in any case, This is a link for it:

Do you know what area in the group policy I would edit to add these commands as a task?

The reason I do not want to do this on each computer individually is if at some point I need to change the date or time it runs at that's a lot of computers I would have to change.  I'm trying to stay with free programs at the moment because most of my clients are small business between 5-15 people... we only have like 2 companies that have ~45 computers to manage.
You can put it in "Run Once" via group policy
or you could put it as a login script and remove it after all computers has been rebooted.
