I had the pleasure of purchasing Advanced Task Scheduler, an incredibly versatile, advanced windows task scheduler. This program has taken the Windows Task Scheduler to a new level. The customer service is superb. I needed a specific modification to the program, and they accommodated it by sending me a patch. I HIGHLY recommend this product.
