    I sure will EM. 1. Select, Start > Accessories > System Tools > Task Scheduler This will launch the Task Scheduler screen. 2. On the right side of the screen select Create Task. This will launch the Create Task window. This window has the following 5 tabs: General, Triggers, Actions, Conditions, Settings. 3. Configure the above tabs according to your specific needs. 4. When complete, on the left side of the screen select Task Scheduler Library to view your newly created task.

    Excellent Jutpro, I have used this myself for scheduled taks. It is a little different than task scheduler on older OSs. I will add that as part of the scheduled task you can tell it to call your specific batch file which you undoubtedly figured out as well. Just put the batch file in a folder you recognize and browse to it. This is done on the actions tab when you choose "add" for the action you want the scheduler to perform.
