In Windows NT you can use scheduling jobs, but in Windows95 you must write simple scheduler. However we must know more. especially Delphi Version and Windows Version.
Here are the second question named "scheduling system" which is about the same problem. Sasas give comment to this question :
"Look for the Delphi Super Page at www.suncite.icm.edu.pl"

This is really good start point, so try and ask what you need more.

procedure TForm1.Timer1Timer(Sender: TObject);
var
  Present : TDateTime;
  Hour, Min, Sec, MSec : Word;
begin
  Timer1.Interval := 60000;  { Check for time every 60 seconds }
  Present := Now;
  DecodeTime(Present, Hour, Min, Sec, MSec);
  If (Hour = 7) and (Min = 0) then
   begin
     { Do the job }
   end;
end;

You should also use the trayicon component to "hide" or minize your program.

P.S. this is not the best way to do it, but it works.
