  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.
