I was setting up a scheduled task and after entering the user name and password, I got the error below:

Error message: “0x80070005 Access is denied“. You do not have permission to perform the requested operation”.

I checked to ensure that the account had the appropriate permissions, including “Log on as a batch job” rights.

Looking at the event viewer gave a clue of what the issue was, “Wrong password“.

Solution: Check that you are using the correct password.
