    You do not need to use task scheduler at all.

    you can set a schedule in NT Backup as a daily schedule and as long as the computer is logged in, it will run the backup.

    Press Start - Programs - Accessories - System Tools - Backup.
    Select Advanced Mode. There find Schedule Jobs tab. Select it and press Add Job. This will let you choose what to backup. As selection is completed you need to specify Schedule Details (daily, weekly etc basis). As you complete the scheduling new task will appear in Start - Programs - Accessories - System Tools - Scheduled Tasks.
    As you see nothing complicated.
