try the windows task planner which is more or less compareable
with crond on unix - not sure how it is called in english

in my windows days years ago i "missused" it as example to start
"liteserve" (a small smtp/pop3/http.. server with GUI) on system
start which supressed the whole GUI and the application was running
completly in background

another option maybe cygwin which AFAIK starts also windows-applications
and may have a way better konsole management supress starting thousands
of terminal windows
