I asked this same question on this list a while back. There is no way to interactively run 
a script as a higher user, otherwise virus writers could take advantage of this (as 
opposed to them currently taking advantage of stupid users and MS's stupid policy of 
making users Administrators by default). The logon.bat runs as the currently logged on user.
