I don't know anything about the Windows internals, but there's a process 
that behaves similarly in UNIX--"cron".  It specifically removes everything 
but a very limited path from the environment (actually, it never runs the 
profile scripts in the first place).

It's possible Windows is doing something similar, to deal with potential 
security issues (you don't want a privileged binary running things from 
random paths, for example).
