Scheduled task does not run in Windows 7 Home Premium

I run a batch file as a scheduled task in Windows 7 Home Premium. It runs fine for some days, then suddenly stops running as if the password is wrong or not present. Re-entering the password seems to make it work.

Anyone know what's going on?

I usually configure my Windows 7 tasks to run with the built-in System account.  As a result you avoid any type of password issues, the task runs with the highest operating system privileges, and it runs hidden in the background.  Something to consider.

I've found the instructions for using the AT comand to set up a task using the SYSTEM account.  Thanks!
