Help and Support Centre...

"In Windows XP, tasks are scheduled and performed based on standard Windows XP security permissions. You can configure tasks by using the NTFS file system security descriptors to set permissions for which users or groups can view, delete, modify, or use a task. In addition, the items that make up the task (the scripts, programs, and documents) are controlled by whatever security descriptors are present for those individual items."
