Thanks Drizzle for that link. Bookmarked it for future.

But the windows task scheduler as well as the piriform command line allows you to only set for once a day running automatically. I would like to run it every hour automatically. Is it possible at all ?

(Fixed the post title to be more clear).

Lh - " If you want more advanced options, click Create Task instead.".
Smacks head. I was screwing around with the basic task. Thank you very much. Now I have set it for every hour. Gotta see if it works.

mike - I tried the SAS trial version but it was giving me start-up headaches in my W7 64 bit OS. So I uninstalled it.

One more question. The Ccleaner did work every hour. But it asks for a confirmation to run (splash screen). How to make it run silently in the background without a prompt from me?

Did you check the skip user account control setting in advanced?

Ok. Got it. Added /Auto in the argument field. Now it is silent as a baby. :)

Thanks mike. That box is not ticked but adding the /Auto argument in task scheduler did the trick.
