comment Why isn't my Scheduled Task running a batch script?
Thanks to all but as the KB fix suggested was simple to test I tried it and it worked a treat. So specific thanks go to Evan. Lifesaver.

In the end it turned out that SteadyState was interfering in the policy settings.

comment Backup Strategy ideas needed for awkward setup
1) Not a great deal as it goes. Currently about 15 gigs max but growing. 2) No, it's a server that exists for taking backups. If the server died we'd have to restore a new server from the back up, not just switch a switch. 3) We sublet space from an external software shop that sublets space from a hosting provider that rents space from a ginormous data warehousing specialist. We are lucky if we can get someone to go and punch the on off switch on one of the boxes.

revised Force screensaver lockout for multiple users on one Windows 7 PC
Explaining that I cannot install software due to policy prohibition and that I am a bit stupid so need a simple answer.

comment Force screensaver lockout for multiple users on one Windows 7 PC
Yes, thank you, managed to get a better overview of this now. I appreciate the effort but several secure network policies (the paper kind) prevent me running any of this software on the box and from what I gather Win7 is not an operating system covered by these executables anyway. Also it seems like a lot of trouble to get a screensaver to lock out and the idea of having to take several other security lockout features along with the screensaver lock out feature doesn't really appeal on principle.

Thank you. However the link to NIST goes to a 404 so I can't see what all the policies would be easily. Also, and I realise I haven't downloaded this yet, we really want to apply only the policy described in my question not necessarily a list of other policies, although if I could at least see what they were we could take a view on that. Thanks.
