Default XP Task Scheduler

Hey guys... i'm having a problem with task scheduler in XP home. I have Spybot S&D for a spyware program and i tried to set it to run automatically, but it will not work. When i go into task scheduler, it says it has never run because i haven't set a password, but when i set a password, i get an access denied window and can't go any further. All of my other tasks work fine though... only spybot has this problem. Any known fixes?

TIA for your help!

spybot has a built in scheduler (basically just puts a schedule in the windows task scheduler for you). I think spybot is 10 times better than ad-aware. I used ad-aware 6 for a while and installed spybot... i had 100 spyware programs that ad-aware never found, so i've never used anything other than spybot.
