    To run scheduled tasks without a password

    In XP Pro
    Go to Start > Administrative Tools > 'Local Security Policy > Security Settings > Local Policies > Security Options
    Accounts: Limit local account use of blank passwords to console logon only. This is enabled by default, disable it.

    In XP Home
    Start > Run > regedit > navigate to
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ SYSTEM\ CurrentControlSet\ Control\ Lsa
    change the value for "limitblankpassworduse" from 1 to 0
