Hello

1) read this artilce
http://delphi.about.com/compute/delphi/library/weekly/aa011100a.htm

2) use shellexecute api

uses shellapi;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  ShellExecute(handle,'open','http://www.experts-
exchange.com',nil,nil,sw_show);
end;

3) in interval every 1000 = 1 second
                     600000 = 10 min
 
 and write ur code in the timer event

Hello

from delphi help :

TTimer.Interval
Determines the amount of time, in milliseconds, that passes before the timer component initiates another OnTimer event.

property Interval: Cardinal;
};

Description

Interval determines how frequently the OnTimer event occurs. Each time the specified interval passes, the OnTimer event occurs.

Use Interval to specify any cardinal value as the interval between OnTimer events. The default value is 1000 (one second).

Note:     A 0 value is valid, however the timer won't call an OnTimer event for a value of 0.
///

so as you see, 1000 value in interval property mean 1 second, so if you want to ur code work every 600 second (10 min)  need to multiply by 1000 = 600000
so you have to put 600000  value in interval property and place ur code in the timer event

if that still not clear, send me email : nasman@mogaza.org
and i will send u sample
