I have pc's out in the field that are running steadystate and I need to deploy some programs. I have a program that will automate the update but i need to push a scheduled task to each machine.  

I am able to push the scheduled task to the machine but it doesn't keep the run as permissions I have set.  It takes an changes the run as to whatever user is logged in for example manager.  I need to have the scheduled task run as the administrator to work with steady state. How can i force the scheduled task to always run as admin even if "manager" or any other user is logged in?

Edit the task and enter SYSTEM as username, don't enter password.
When you edit it again, you'll see that it was changed to
NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM
