I want to deploy a group policy to run a scheduled task at 9 PM each night to run a taskkill command. I only need it executed if the user is logged on, and I'd prefer to not have to enter credentials for the command that might change later, even though that's not as big a deal. I've had a devil of a time getting it to deploy, using either user configuration or computer configuration. Basically, I can't get anything to work so far. I only want it to run based on the user logged in, not at a whole machine level. What's the proper way of getting a command scheduled for users that I've added to a security group to run this command at a certain time?

BTW, I've noticed that whenever I establish a time in in AD it puts it one hour ahead of the time I specified, even though I see nothing at the server level that has inconsistencies with DST or the like.
