How to set up a cron job on Windows

As you probably know, the easiest way to implement automatic monitoring of your services is by creating a periodic job on your system. On Linux-based machines this is quite easy, and lots of hosting panels provide web-based configuration tools. But on Windows, setting up a cron job can be a real pain. One user of PHP Server Monitor, Robert Inzano, has taken the time to put together a step by step tutorial on how to set up cronjobs on Windows. Please see attached PDF file for the complete walk-through.

Robert, thanks for your time and effort!
