User Accounts 2

Hi Folks,

This is a complex question but will try to compose it as simply as possible. Please read carefully.

On my Laptop, I set CCleaner to run at 0800hrs every Saturday using Task Scheduler. Ticked boxes, 'Run with highest privileges' and 'Run task as soon as possible after a scheduled start is missed'. As this was done on my 'Admin' account, SFSG.
-
Now I have added a 'Standard' account which is set to run on starting my Laptop. If I change the setting from 'Run only when user is logged on' to 'Run whether user is logged on or not' ( it asked for my password and I entered it). Will CCleaner do its work on both accounts ?
-
In my Admin account, CCleaner needs permission from UAC but not on my Standard account (UAC default setting on both accounts).

No. When you use "Run as Administrator" from a standard user account, it runs under the administrator account not the standard user.

Any suggestions on how to get it to run on my 'Standard' account automatically?

Hi Dwarf, I've already been shown how to auto log on by Shawn (Brink). I'm trying to find how to program CCleaner to work on 2 accounts using Task Scheduler 1 Admin & 1 Standard.
