    or just use schtasks.exe… or type system into the select user box.

    Thanks for that! Works like a dream. Myself and a colleague had been scratching our heads trying to get a simple task to run under any of the local accounts; scripts run fine on their own but gave 0x1 error code when trying to run as a scheduled task using network or local service a/c. The Export/Import trick has workd for us. Super, thanks 🙂

    Great post, buddy. I didn’t clone it, but I did make one in a default tasks folder (defrag) and it showed up and ran under a regular user account! That does NOT happen if you make a task to run as system under the default task area. Somehow, those folders are special. Also figured out by doing this that some tasks running as system don’t work right. No idea why. They run fine as local admin. Others work just fine. Test, test, test, of course. Learned something valuable, so thanks.
