When using schtasks.exe, I can easily change "Run as" to be System (NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM), with /RU option.

But I want to see task creator (under creator in Scheduled Tasks folder) to be System as well (now I see there my username). How can i do it? (If I use AT.exe the creator is automatically System...)

Presumably you could use runas to launch schtasks under the System account.

how can i do it? NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM has no password... and runas asks for password – erez Mar 28 '11 at 15:09
