Run cmd as SYSTEM on Windows 2008 Server

Thanks to Jarvis for this one, to run a cmd window as the SYSTEM account on Windows 2008 Server, download PSExec from Microsoft and use this command:
psexec -i -s %comspec%

The previous method using AT does not work with Win 2008, nor does the schtasks command in Win 2008 do the job either.

Easy when you know how.
