    Why wouldn't you use the Task Scheduler?

    You could always do something like:

    while (1) { # your script goes here. sleep 86400; }
    But that would be a bit silly.
    Use the Task Scheduler - that's what it is for.

    Or, you could look at Cron for Windows.
    Or maybe CronW, which appears to be a Perl implementation of the same.

    Dude - spend 1 minute Googling. It doesn't bite ;)

      thanks for the reply.I took your advice to the task scheduler again thanks for your help McDarren
