Is there a way to get limited users to be able to run a batch file?

I want to have a batch file that sits on the desktop that they wil run on a friday that will update and scan the computer. Theres 20 computers so doing it by hand will be a pain.

Is this possible without using the password in plaintext in the batch file?

Hi -
Why do you need a .bat file to run updates and scan your system ? ? Are you talking of M/soft updates and Antivirus scans ? ?
Updates can be set to download , or download and install at any time you select - This is done in Control Panel -
Scans for infections (antivirus) can be set to run daily, weekly, or as you choose, depending on your A/virus program -

Are these the scans etc, that you want to run ? ? Or is there some more options you want to add ? ?

This is on 10 pcs in a lab that people who tend to stop scans and updates use. Coming in i found every pc had at least 150 infections and as im only helping with these computers for a short time i want to stick a script on the desktop that the tutor can tell the class (who you can assume are computer illiterate) to click instead of shutting down the pc's on a friday. The computers are very low end so i can understand why they stop scans etc.

I just want it so that i can have the pc's shut down on a friday knowing there updated / scanned.
