Why can't I create this task?

I am getting the below error when I try to create a scheduled task with a "At Startup" trigger.  I created another task using the same account without issue.  I have tried to create the task manually and to import it with the same issue.

This is a DC.

what is the error?
There was no "below error" provided.  So...I blame fire-ants.
the cutoff picture contains the error.. Basically the account that you are using to create the task isn't an administrator which is required to create a system wide task (run on startup)
You probably can create a task that runs on login though
Agreed.  To be fair though, at the time I posted there was no picture...cut off or otherwise.  That was an edit made after I posted.  Which EE apparently doesn't notify participants about.

Cliff; EE says the question was asked by Glen Krinsky and you really need to be logging in as him in order to keep the question thread properly.
@Davis: You misunderstand.  I am not the OP, nor am I claiming to be.  I was agreeing with David's assessment, and explaining my initial comment that there was no error posted.  At the time I posted that comment, the OP had not posted the screenshot and so early participants had nothing to go on, and EE did not notify me of the change.  I am not Glen. I cannot log in as Glen.  I did not make the OP edit as you seem to think I did.  No harm, no foul.

The account I am using was used to create another task on the same machine.  The difference between the tasks was that the successful one used date/time as triggers and the failed one is running at startup.
