Log on as a batch job

This security setting allows a user to be logged on by means of a batch-queue facility and is provided only for compatibility with older versions of Windows.

For example, when a user submits a job by means of the task scheduler, the task scheduler logs that user on as a batch user rather than as an interactive user.
