Windows 7 Home Premium x64

I have no experience with it but I would imagine you could find a way to leverage PowerShell do do this.

How To Stop And Start Services On Remote Windows Computers

Did you try psservice based on these parameters?

Can the program be accessed as a service or do you need to actually run an exe? I have not had much luck finding the correct syntax for net start. I am finding vague "non-exampled" examples If I find anything useful I will post
Thank you for this info, i will give it a go. I have not tried psservice but i will want to run an exe rather than an actual service.

I do quite a lot with batch files and can do this but don't want it when logging in, i want to do it as and when i feel like it.

I am currently looking at powershell at the moment, it looks very good.
