Task Scheduler in Win XP

I am trying to set scheduler to run ntbackup.exe "out of hours" but it fails with the message:-

"The scheduled task did not run because an incorrect password or user name was entered."

I suspect that it is trying to match a non-existent startup password with a blank I entered in the scheduler setup.

Am I correct in assuming that scheduler can only run if a startup password can be matched when the task is set to run?

I have not set a startup password as I don't want to have to sit waiting to enter it every time I start up my PC. I am the only user.

Once again I suspect I may have missed something somewhere and would appreciate a word of advice.
