    Good afternoon,

    Could anyone help me with this problem ?

    I always thought that someone logged in as administrator in Vista has full
    (ie. read &write) access to all files and directories in the computer.
    Vista's "task scheduler" is telling me that I do not have certain rights to
    make changes to my tasks and that I do not have permission to access certain

    Well, as administrator, I told Vista's "task scheduler" to run a .bat file
    which tells the computer to go into a couple of directories and delete all
    the IE cookies that it finds there. Here are the directories:


    First, "task scheduler" tells me that I need "batch rights" in order to run
    my task. Second, it tells me that I do not have permission to access the
    above directories. I am running Vista on a home computer. There are two
    accounts: "UserName" (which we all use) and, of course, the adminstrator

    I didn't realize that scheduling tasks would be such a big production !

    Thanks for any help you can provide.
