I need a function that checks and clean my database of old data, e g if its older than 4 months delete it.

I have Sql Management Server Studio Express so I can't do it with jobs.

Is windows service or webservice the way to go? or maybe windows schedule tasks

I need help to get started, so please give me some examples.

My next task is to be able in my aspx page to set dates for automatic email reminders for people that have not yet registered for different events.

hi.. i am doing the same thing ......

I have created a console application and sheduled it. After every 24 hours it runs through the datatable and deletes the records that is 6 months old.

Hence you can use a windows application and schedule it.

if you are still interested...
you don't need to create/compile a application.

you can use sqlcmd.exe (which comes with sql server 2005+), which has a parameter to execute a sql statement. putting that into a plain .bat file (with notepad editor), and schedule that .bat in your windows scheduler, and you are done.
