Logon as Batch Job for Windows 7 Home Premium?

I have a task that I want to schedule on a Windows 7 Home Premium computer, and need to give a user "Logon as batch job" permissions for the task to run as scheduled. How to I grant a non-Administrator user the right permissions on this version of Windows?

To answer the specific question about the rights assignment....
Run secpol.msc from the command line (I am *assuming* that Home Basic has secpol.msc?)  Click on Local Policies, User Rights Assignmennts, then double-click on "Log on as a Batch Job" to add your account to the list

Damn... the Home editions do NOT include secpol.msc.

@jazzIIIlove - Thanks, close but doesn't really apply.

@graye - That's what I was wondering, if something like secpol.msc was available. I'll check out that util you posted a link to.
