For what it's worth, personally I'd hesitate to recommend "at" for anything running every five minutes. Constantly rescheduling the job is more hassle than it's worth.

Scheduled Tasks (GUI or command line) handles schedules of this sort nicely.

      You could use cron from the cygwin tools, if you want a free package. It's not GUI-based, but if you're familiar with cron on unix, you'll be at home with it.
