My script works fine when executed manually, but fails or hangs when run by Windows Scheduler

Hi There
I found that when i manually run a Batch file it ran up uploaded files.
If however Task scheduler ran it failed. Finally i added logging and got the below "**WARNING - POTENTIAL SECURITY BREACH!**. If I run the WinSCP program after clearing teh cache etc, i get the manually prompt but can't figure out who to get the script file to acknowledge this?

Error
