the SYSTEM account is already such an account, can you use that one instead?

if your mean of non interactive user account is this,
you dont want to enter password while logged in computer system.
solution is : you need one account with administrator privilege.
start > run > control userpasswords2 > un check user must enter user name and password to use this computer.

system is a very hidden account that you can't mess with... but you can specify a service to run as local system, that will do it.

if you make a scheduled task to run at a set time, you can have it run as system

but you cannot log in as the user called system

B HCommented:
it uses the account named system, and a machine password that was assigned during windows setup

applications won't typically use it, but SERVICES would

you can generally see what username applications are using by going to the task manager (control-shift-escape) on the 'processes' tab, with a checkmark at the bottom for 'show processes from all users'

the user column shows which user each application is running as.

"system admin" isn't "local system"... a system admin is any account included in the "administrators" group - which may include "domain administrators"

with a few hacks, you can log in as the local system account - but due to several security patches you won't have access to do anything, not even execute any program.
