Can I shorten the time to check idle in Task Scheduler?

By brianmpenn ·
I am setting up a Windows 7 KIOSK computer and have a task that restarts IE with -k -private when idle, thereby flushing any cached information from previous users. The problem is that the task scheduler only checks for an idle state every 15minues. I was hoping that someone knew of a registry entry or other work around whereby I could set the time to a more frequent interval.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I need the task to trigger when the computer is idle. If I set it to trigger on a set interval it could potentially reset an active session and make for an unsavory user experience. The task I created works except for the fact that Task Scheduler (the managing program) only checks for an idle state every 15 minutes. I would like it to check more often, thereby keeping the session cache clear for the next user.
