Windows 7: Cobian Backup at Startup

Cobian Backup at Startup

I am trying to start the Cobian Backup software when Windows 7 boots. I have tried two methods: putting a shortcut in the startup menu, and creating a task in the task scheduler.

Putting a shortcut in the startup menu caused the UAC controls to activate every time the program was executed. Creating a task to run the software at boot did not work either I think because despite the fact that I selected to run with the highest authorization, it would not execute.

I selected the option to run whether or not the user was logged in. I think this was the issue. But selecting the other option (to run when the administrator is logged in) required a password. I do not wish to associate a password with my login because I don't want to have to enter it each time I boot the machine.

I searched for autologin solutions, but could not get any of the suggestions to work.

Can you suggest a way to run Cobian at boot without invoking the UAC (but not necessarily disabling UAC entirely)? Or provide an autologin solution so that I can use the task scheduler?

You can register the program as a service under an admin account

if on the domain you need to pass the domain in front

DOMAIN\User Login.

Then set the time to backup.

you'll prolly still have to lower the UAC to stop the notification.
