Yeah, you add the task like any other, and its schedule would be 'when my computer starts' instead of every tuesday or whatever. You set the part that says 'Run as another user' to whoever & give it the password, then the application logs on at boot without having to run all that's involved in creating a full-fledged desktop session. You can take it even further and create a 'system service' to run in the background, its more involved because of security restrictions that come up when something runs outside 'userspace' ie. as the 'SYSTEM' account, that does stuff like making hardware work.

comment Firefox 4 (b7) per-tab profiles
I saw cookie switcher, but not account switcher. For now these won't work with FF4b7. Cookieswitcher has similar functionality as the 2 windows with different profiles, just without a whole new window running. If they could container-ize 1 tab not all it'd be ideal. It wasn't clear how the other one was different, and I couldn't install it to this version to see. Also my provider isn't Google, so that's not an available function to make use of either. Thanks nonetheless.

There's another function of the Task Scheduler that has a similar effect to what these solutions do, yet subtly different. And that's the ability to schedule an application to run at startup, as a user. What this does is has an application run as if that user was logged on- as soon as the computer starts and reaches the login screen. The same login screen we're automatically logging in through then re-establishing with the lock command. Except in our case now we have all that user's startup apps going rather than just one being set to go at startup. I don't know if that might be another way.

In XP Home 32, when I pointed Task Scheduler to the shortcut (.lnk file) I had created it followed it along to the executable it pointed to, leaving behind the arguments the shortcut was passing to the executable. Pointing Task Scheduler to the .cmd file runs the .cmd file. Task Scheduler ends there, it doesn't keep going to where the command refers it to, as it did with the .lnk file. This way it doesn't bypass the arguments contained within, rather runs the executable and the arguments defined by the command.
