    Scheduled Task on Win7 with Highest Privileges

    Will a program that was started by a Scheduled Task with the Highest Privileges open other programs and give them the same privileges?

    For example, myApp.exe is ran by a Scheduled Task [SYSTEM user] with "Run with highest privileges" checked, and it opens other programs that also need Highest Privileges. Are these other programs given the same privileges when opened by myApp.exe [thus bypassing UAC and restricted folders] or do they run with the current user privileges [thus prompting UAC or Access Denied errors]?

    The elevation applies to child processes as long as they have the same "integrity level"...

    Yeah, I discovered that by playing around with .bat files.
