I am looking for a utility I can run on my windows Vista machine that will continuously ping a certain website.  I want it running in the background at Windows startup.

Does anyone here know of such a utility?

Thanks

Thanks all for the suggestions so far.

regnightc,

In the case of sleep     How do I integrate that into a batch file.  There are no instructions on the link.

do I run sleep batch.bat?

Thanks

Drop Sleep.exe in your windows directory then in your bat file use

c:\windows\sleep.exe 60 /silent

or just sleep 60 /silent might work
