Windows 7: How to close/exit some program using Task Scheduler in Windows 7?

How to close/exit some program using Task Scheduler in Windows 7?

I want to turn on and off some backup programs to be automatically turned on and off at a set time instead of running in the background all the time and consuming memory.

I know how to start any program using Windows Task Scheduler, but unable to find how to turn off the same program using it.

Is there any way of doing it?

I would really appreciate any help.

Thank you!

You can use the taskkill command...

Just found this:
A batch file to kill a process

or do you mean something else, without using the batch file?

You can write/use a batch script to run that backup programs of yours and terminate after completion. You can then schedule this batch script to run at a time of your choice via task scheduler.

Open a command prompt and type taskkill /? and press enter to see how to use the options for the command. You can either use it in a batch file that's called from the task, or use the command itself in the task. Then you need to figure out how you want to trigger the task.
