Windows 7: schtasks.exe "Error: Access is denied"

Windows 7 ultimate 32
schtasks.exe "Error: Access is denied"

Dear all,

I am trying to enable my son playing his "Steam" games as administrators without giving him administrator rights...

I found a nice article describing how to create a Scheduler Task and then a shortcut to that task but it does not work when logged in as a standard user.

So, if I logon as administrator and run "schtasks.exe /run /tn MyTask", it's fine.

If I try this as a standard user, I get "ERROR: Access is denied"

I tried to grant that user "Login as batch job" but that does not seem to have made much difference...
However, I am no expert in Windows 7 and I am not 100% sure that my policy grant is effective... I rebooted just in case but still no joy.

Any idea?

Many Thanks
