Here's the scenario,

I have a virtual Windows server hosted on Amazon Web Services EC2, I usually use the instance for periods of time through an RDP connection and then will just stop it when done.

I need a script to be executed every time I re-start the instance.

Please include detailed steps.

Actually, any method that works for a regular Windows server will also work in EC2.
For example, using the task scheduler you can define that something is executed at server startup.
Create a new task, define it to run whether user is logged or not, and add a trigger that specifies to execute on startup.
