A batch file? A script? How would I do that? I don't understand how these things are constructed.

You could write a batch script to run the WMC command, you would then just create a scheduled task to run the batch script at the desired times and you could possibly run the script as system user so it doesn't pop up on screen when running.

I figured this one out from searching online: taskkill /f /im ehshell.exe

Thanks for your suggestion though.
