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?
