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.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

After a bit of searching I found a 3rd-party tool that might perform the same functions as 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.
