I want to pass a netstat -t -b 90 command and tell the prompt to simultaneously or successively perform this command to launch network monitor start netmon /autostart.

The Start-Job command in PowerShell will do what you want. You'll want to use it in conjunction with Wait-Job and Receive-Job.

For example:

$netstat = Start-Job {netstat -t -b 90}
$ping = Start-Job {ping}
Wait-Job $netstat,$ping
Receive-Job $netstat,$ping

The first two lines will begin the netstat and ping jobs, and store the job objects. Wait-Job will wait until the two jobs are finished. Receive-Job displays the output.

thankyou so much for your help – Andres V Meza III May 26 '13 at 2:21

You could use start-process, if you're not picky about launching them in a separate window rather than in the background.
