1) What is the script intended to do, i mean what do you want to acheive
2) once the script is complete, you can use the windows scheduler to  to run the script every hour.

I doubt that through window scheduler  tool we can run script for every hour for Indefinite period.
Windows scheduler is intented Exactly for Your task. And it has all needed options to precise control over the job execution time. It's true,  just try.

You can doubt it, but I've run a script every 5 minutes for the last 2 years on one server - it updates MRTG to show a graph of my internet throughput.  I use Scheduled Tasks.  And it's still running.  Is that "indefinite" enough?
I agree with Mechanic_Kharkov.

1) Head over to control panel - Start | Settings | Control Panel
2) Run Scheduled Tasks by double-clicking it
3) Using Windows Explorer, locate your batch file and drag-&-drop it from Explorer to the Scheduled Tasks' pane.
4) In Scheduled Tasks, double-click your batch file task to edit it's properties.
5) Under the Tasks tab, verify Run As points to the correct user and then Set the password.
6) Under the Schedule tab, click Advanced, tick Repeat TAsk, set Every to 10 minutes and click OK
7) click Apply. Type in a password if you are prompted for one and click OK twice.

This should set your batch file to run every 10 minutes.
