Application scheduling - At all possible?

  ArrGee 13:10 16 Aug 2006

I'm probably asking the impossible here.

Now and then I run a number of Spyware apps (Ad Aware, Spybot, Ewido, etc) as they all seem to pick-up different spy/malware. However, it's quite a tedious task and takes up quite a bit of time.

What I'm looking for is an app that could open-up Spybot, let it run for a set time, shut it down, then open Ad Aware, etc.

Is there an app out ther that can open and close these, and also contain some kind of macro to automatically hit the 'Run Scan' button?

My time could then be better spent down the pub!

Lokk in Help & Support for Windows Scheduler.

I've had a look at that before, and there doesn't seem to be 'macro' to hit the 'Run Scan' button.

Can Windows Scheduler be used in conjunction with another app to run the 'macro' type ability I mentioned in the first post?
