Consider doing away with Windows hosting and choosing Linux instead.  It's not a great way to go, but once you've started down the Windows hosting path you've got one foot in the grave.  Linux will at least give you a chance to get even with others who are interested in professional hosting.

Windows uses a "Scheduled Task" whereas Linux uses a "CRON job."

Ray, I don't think hosting is his problem.

He has 7 pages open in Chrome and wants to reload each of them every x seconds, where x is different for each page.

For this, I would use AutoHotkey with an infinite loop, eventually checking if Chrome crashed and opening the pages again if it did.

HTH,
Dan

I can not just switch my desktop os to linux.

I also can not learn a new language

but I think autohotkey is a better solution that I may learn sometime in the future when I finish many php tutorials.

Thanks.

Glad I could help!

PS: if you already know any scripting language (vbscript, powershell etc), you'll pick up Autohotkey immediately.

If not and you find a rainy day when you're tired to learn php, in a few hours you'll learn enough for 90% of the auto scripts you'll ever need.

WebCron
If you're looking for a simpler solution, you might consider one of the webcron services out there which will load a specific URL at a given time.
For example,  this service: https://www.easycron.com
