I need to do series of tasks like take backups just before my PC shutsdown. I am not permitted to use any downloaded tool for doing this. So my idea is to use batch files to do these repeat tasks.

My question:

is it possible to schedule tasks in windows XP just before shutdown? I donot find any option in the scheudle tasks dialog though.

If you have XP Pro, you there is a place in the local group policy editor (gpedit.msc) to add batchfiles to be run on shutdown.
