Windows 7: Looking for a task scheduler other than Windows' own

Looking for a task scheduler other than Windows' own

The Windows task scheduler is ok but it doesn't always start up my applications or does certain things. It would be great if there's a task scheduler other than Windows' own.

Thanks
