Task Scheduler Frustration

I have gotten very frustrated by the wierd behaviour of the windows task scheduler.

I am running Windows XP home edition with SP2. All patches are current (as per Windows Update).

Recent research has shown that all scheduled tasks now must run under an account with a password. Having done this, I have been able to get things to run on schedule, again. However, these programs no longer interface with the user (ie: open windows, dialog boxes, etc...). The TASK SCHEDULER service is running under the local/system account and the allow service to interact with desktop is checked.

What am I missing??? :tazz:
