I want to run scheduled tasks on a windows machine on hourly basis. This task should run some scripts in firefox or IE.
this guy loads the script:
"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" http://localhost/cron.php
and works fine..
But, can you guys tell me what's the command-line to shut down the firefox or IE browser browser from the command line?

You can set a script to open a window, wait a while and then close it, or close it after a certain response. This one starts ie, waits 5 seconds and then closes the window even if something else took focus in between.
run, iexplore.exe htp: // localhost/cron.php
