Scheduled tasks and Sysprep

There is the well documented problem of Scheduled Tasks that use a system
account not running on a PC that uses a Syspreped image but I have a
situation where neither Scheduled Tasks running under a system account OR a
user account will run. Also, the "Run As" box is greyed out so I don't have
the option to run as a different user. Any ideas as to sort this would be
much appreciated. My Sysprep reference machine runs XP PRO SP2 and I have
"Ghosted" it to eight machine which all have the same problem.
Thanks,
Steve.

My guess would be some password problem. Maybe all the machines use some multiple instance of an account? Scheduled tasks for
accounts never run, if the account has no password.
