Hello Diane and welcome to Seven Forums.
I agree. You can certainly do both. However, if you're going to use the Windows 7 Task Scheduler (or some other third party scheduler) to have each task run automatically at a set time, I wouldn't schedule them to run at the same time. Task Scheduler - Create New Task
I think the more things a computer has to do at the same time the greater the possibility of a glitch, a slowdown, a freeze, or even a crash. Not to mention the possibility of permanently damaging or corrupting your files and data. But that's just me.
