need a bat file to run with a hidden cmd or minimized cmd window

I have the following code that I need to run every five minutes to purge directories
The code works but it shows a command window until it finishes. can the window be minimized or hidden? if can  you show me in code please? I have a scheduled task set to fire the bat
@echo off
cd "c:\documents and settings\"
rem Enter into top level folder, process it and go back to original folder
pushd x
call :processFolder
popd
goto :EOF

:processFolder

rem For each folder in this level
FOR /F "tokens=*" %%a IN ('DIR /A:D /b') do (
 
	cd %%a
   call :processFolder
   cd ..
   rem If is the target folder, delete it
   if /I "%%a" == "Temp" (
     
   del  /Q "%%a"\*.* 
   )
)
exit /B

Open in new window
