All the Unix people go on about Cron.
I have just moved to a new Win2003 box, and want MRTG to start 
automatically without a user sign on.
So I found Cron for windows (www.kalab.com) and installed the Service 
Configure the Cron.tab file to tell it to start MRTG avery 5 mins (do NOT 
set the .cfg to RunAsDemon) and it all works, and picks up changes as you 
make them.
