    hello,

    i'm running win7 ultimate x64.

    i have network backup utility that requires that i mount some network drives as the SYSTEM user. i created a bacth file to run at logon that works great.

    my issue is that this batch file contains plain-text password(s) that i would rather not have sitting there between logons.

    is there an easy way to fix this? another batch file that locks the 1st one after it is in use? i don't really know how to proceed here.

    i could make the batch file into an .exe archive with winrar, but is there a way to set up task scheduler to run a password protected .exe?

    thanks...

    I just downloaded a batch to .exe converter and went with that. not perfect, but at least it's not a plain text .bat file.
