Windows 7: Task Scheduling

14 Mar 2010   #1

Task Scheduling

Im trying to automate most of the routine maintenance of my machine. I have ran into a few issues.

What im trying to automate:

CCleaner auto update
CCleaner auto scan/delete
CCleaner auto reg scan/fix
Spybot auto update
Spybot scan/remove/backup
Defraggler auto update
defraggler scan/repair

It would also have to wake itself up from sleep mode to do the required tasks.

I can run programs with the windows 7 task scheduler, but it gets a little trick from there on out like with updated and backing up.
