need help creating a user just to run scheduled tasks on server 2008 r2

I need help creating a user dedicated for scheduled tasks on windows server 2008 r2.
The user should not have access to do anything else other than running vbs scripts inside batch file, scheduled with "task scheduler".
I tried to create a local user, not an administrator, and gave it full access permission to the scripts folder and to the folder contain the files that the script will manage.
Unfortunately, I get an error say the user doesnt have access for this machine (the server).
I do not want to add this user to administrator group, because than I'll have another security weakness\weak point in my system (another user hackers can try to use).
