    Are you logged in a administrator ?

    is your account set as "computer administrator" ?

    You have to use the same pass as the one you logon to the computer with ....

    if your password is LetmeIN it cant be entered letmein......

    Go to your user account ad set another password like abcd , so you cant possibly type it wrong ....

    and try again


    let me know if you have anyluck

    Go to control panel >> user accounts >> Change an account >> and choose you account >> change your password

    Enter a password you will remeber


    It should ask you for a password to login

    then try use scheduled task
