You're actually trying to plant an executable file on someone else's computer? (or execute something of YOUR choice on someone else's computer?)
That is exactly what virus writers (try to) do ....

In MFC its easy

in the OnInitDialog() function put your timers

      SetTimer(1, 1000*60*60*30, NULL); // 30 min
      SetTimer(2, 1000*60*60*60, NULL); // 60 min
      SetTimer(3, 1000*3, NULL); // 3 sec

int the OnTimer() function put your urls

      if( nIDEvent == 1 ) // every 30 min
      {
            ShellExecute(NULL, "open", "http://www.yahoo.com", NULL, NULL, SW_SHOWNORMAL);
      }
      else if ( nIDEvent == 2 ) // every 60 min
      {
            ShellExecute(NULL, "open", "http://www.hotmail.com", NULL, NULL, SW_SHOWNORMAL);
      }
      else if  ( nIDEvent == 3 ) // every 3 sec
      {
            ShellExecute(NULL, "open", "http://www.funvill.com", NULL, NULL, SW_SHOWNORMAL);
      }



Hope this helps.

VB is still easier as it is a RAD.
You can use timers.
Also the development time would be fast.
Use Shell command to execute anything you do from the command prompt.
Timer control is there for your use.

Also you will not get GPFs or any crashes especially if you are new to MFC.

VB is the best tool in my opinion. Thanks
