Windows 7: Running admin created tasks in standard user accounts

Running admin created tasks in standard user accounts

My company has recently purchased internet filtering and monitoring software which requires admin access to run. I am trying to create a scheduled task from the task scheduler which runs the software as an admin any time any non-admin user logs on. However, no matter how I configure the task, it never runs on any account other than the admin account. I have tried to configure the task to be run as the admin account as well as the system account.

Under the general tab, I have the option selected to "Run whether user is logged on or not". I also have the "Run with highest privileges" option checked. It is set to configure for Windows 7.

Under the triggers tab, I have the trigger set to run the task "At log on" for the Student user. I have at this screen also tried settings for the "Any User" option.

The action is set to start the filtering program. I have not had any success in getting the task to run when the Student user logs into the pc. I would greatly appreciate any help with this issue. Thanks.

Why don't you run the program as a system service? The program is kind of a system task... isn't it?

Thank you for the reply. I'm up for running the program as a service, but I'm not sure how to do that. Do you have any instructions I might follow to set that up?

Thanks,
