Windows 7: Jarvis-like Application?

Jarvis-like Application?

Good evening everyone!

A few years ago I created a script on my G5 iMac that would act like the Jarvis alarm in Iron Man where the blinds would flip open (I didn't go that far...) and he would state the time and temperature but mine included playing music and opening the Apple Mail application but it would use the default system voice to say everything. My question is, does anyone know how we can utilize the system voice built in to Windows 7 and write a script that would do all of these tasks? At the moment, I'm open to any language other than VBScript... I dread that language but I know several others pretty fluently (powershell and python would be the only ones relative to this situation..).. So anyone got any ideas?

Avoiding '<application name> is not a valid Win32 application' error.
OK, this is admittedly a strange one... I have used an old (probably a 16-bit) application as my time synchronizer this I've used for quite some time. Its name is TimeRC, and is a great synchronizer as it tracks moon phases along with the time (from selectable, multiple potential time servers)....

I disabled application info and application update in services.msc
And now I am so screwed. I can't even open services.msc, I can't install an update, I can't run updates and I can't re enable anything because I can't get into services to do it. Please don't say system restore because I disabled it. If you say get a mac, then yes, I agree!:D
