I've created a user account to run some tasks, If I run the task with my account but using "Run As" taskmanager user, the task runs ok (no permission problems, and get what I'm expecting). But if I run the same task using taskmanager It fails 0x1 and I get the next error on Security EventLog (in spanish sorry):

The Task simply gets Security Audit from EventLog (PsLogList.exe). Any Idea?

Thanks, BR

SORRY, close this. The problem is security over Security EventLog. – elgransan Aug 10 '10 at 15:32

By using the "Run As" command you're really not running it as your user, you're "running" it "as" the account that you enter when doing the Run As. They're two completely different security contexts. If the task fails under your account then you don't have the proper permissions to run the task in question.
