You will probably have to develop a windows service application which will use a timer and maybe threads to execute your task.
In .NET the timer can be setup to trigger from 1 milisecond.

when i have to do stuff like this I always use AutoIT to create a service and use it for that purpose.  AutoIt is a scripting language and very, very, very easy to learn.. just get help from the forum and/or the local help file

Why not try firedaemon ?
Firedaemon has a scheduler service in the 00:00:00 format...

You also have a restart-schedule if you want to - and you can run whatever batch, exe you want to !
It's really handy :)

In the screenshot, you can see that I am restarting pullmail every 600 seconds... but if you want to run a service for let's say 10:00:35 till 10:00:40 - I bet this will work out like you want it.

(you can trial for 30 days anyway - and the version I'm having is already older (1.9) )

If you search the net for coupons on firedaemon, you can get FireDaemon for about $40
That's not allot of money... for a tool as such.

You might find other tools, for free, but I've been looking around already - and decided my time to search for a freeware tool already took more than $40 ;-)
