    I'm not sure if this is even possible, but I really need it.

    I'm looking for an app that could 'record' what you do with the mouse and keyboard. Then I can schedule my computer to do that like let's say 3:00am

    For example, click on an icon, type in this text, press enter, wait 10 minutes, open a text file, delete a text file, open an another app, ect...

    I have to do this whole process for my site which take's 10 minutes to do, and there should be an application to 'auto' do this, so I don't have to go on my computer everyday doing it!

    Please help out, this is very important!\

    If you don't understand, I will try to explain it better.

    Don't know of any such app, but i'm assuming that everything that has to do with scheduling a web site can be done in an easier way, php for say?
    on the other hand i have no idea what is it exactly that you want to do.

    I was looking for this exact same thing a little while back. Windows 3.1 used to have such a program, but they stopped making it starting with Windows 9x.

    Here's the URL where I posted the question:
    http://www.tek-tips.com/viewthread.cfm?SQID=388619&SPID=613&page=1

    Unfortunately the only program the could suggest costs $23 which I, of course, do not want to pay anywhere near that much for such a program.

    If you ever find a free program that does this, let me know here as well.

    That link just goes to tek-tips main page...

    and I would pay that much, if I could download at test it first. This would save me many hours a week. And I do use PHP. I couldn't use PHP alone for this, since it need's to be done remotely.

    Ever hear of batch files? If you're familiar with vb or wmi scripting, you can program a job or series of tasks to take place whenever you want. It's a tedious process (at least, the debugging part) but works pretty well.

    As far as the app is concerned, you can use notepad for coding. :)

    Not sure if this is what you are looking for? They do have a free trial download.

    You could create a macro and have that record all the keystokes and clicks and then schedule it to run at whatever time u want.
