Im needing to create a batch file that a user, without admin credentials, can run to remote start multiple computers on a company network.  Would a batch even be the best route to take?

You could put a batch that runs as a Scheduled Task that runs at off-hours. You (admin) would setup the task. The user doesn't need to do anything.

The user could also start the task, if needed.

Hi NVIT, I have already done that and set the task to run at midnight but the machines are a digital bulletin board running PowerPoint and if an emergency comes up the users that manage the bulletin board need to restart the computers to update with bulletin board with the emergency update information.

Users should be able to run the task that the admin sets up. In Task Scheduler, users can right-click the task and pick Run.

When you setup the task:
- Set Change User as the admin or domain user
- Set "Run whether user is logged on or not"
- Set "Run with highest privileges"
