Depending on your Microsoft Windows operating system version, these steps may vary.

  1. Click Start and select Control Panel > Scheduled Tasks > Add Scheduled Task.
  2. In the Scheduled Task Wizard, select any application to run.
  3. Select a daily time to run the task.
  4. Select Open Advanced.
  5. Change the Run command to:

    net stop webhelpdesk

  6. Save your changes.

To create a second scheduled task to restart Web Help Desk, follow the steps above, but use the Run command net start webhelpdesk as the final step.

Schedule the start at least one minute later than the stop command to ensure that the service stopped before attempting to restart.
