Scheduled Tasks per user or per PC?

Specs: WindowsXP, Athlon, 1Gb RAM
I am wanting to run a scheduled task on a
number of XP machines, that will call a batch
file that defrags and then shuts down the PC.

Because the PCs all have roaming profiles
with multiple users, I need to make sure the
task will run no matter who is logged on.

When I set up the task, if I set it up in the
local administrator account will it run no matter
who was logged on last, or if anyone is logged

Apologies if this is in the wrong forum - not
sure whether it should be here or networking,
but it seems more OS specific.

When you create a scheduled task you must specify a user account and password. This is because there may be no user logged in when the task runs, or he may not have sufficient rights to run the task. In short, scheduled tasks will run with no regard for users who may or not be logged in when when they rum.
