Windows 7: Please help me write a script

Please help me write a script

Hey all,

Long long time lurker, first time poster. I'm leaving the country for vacation and I'd like to setup a script that runs every hour to check and see if my VNC Client is running. I use this VNC client to remote into my computer from my phone and the thought of not being able to do this while abroad doesn't sit well with me. From time to time, the client crashes and the only thing I can do is restart it while physically in front of my host machine. Essentially I'd like a script that can do the following:

Check running programs for VNC proccess and service
If running, do nothing
If not running, start
If running but non-responsive, force kill and restart
Repeat hourly

What are some of the ways this is possible? Just an FYI, I use UltraVNC for this. Let me know if any other information is needed. Thank you in advance for your help.

Hiya pal and welcome to the forums

Why not have a looky at Team Viewer - no need to mess about with scripts etc. you can use the web based connection method to remote your system ... and the best thing is, it's free for non-commercial use
