Some clarification on what you are trying to hide might be useful.

Are you trying to prevent the passwords from appearing in the scheduled scripts?

Or the log files?

Or something else?

As this is windows, it doesn't really have the ps command available to show the password. Even if ps is available, I don't think it shows the password.

IAC, more info is needed.
