You write your php script say mycron.php. Then in windows start/programs/accessories/system tools/schedule task, add one task
you may give direct command like

php.exe "c:\apache\htdocs\myweb\myfolder\mycron.php?mypara=1"

you may set time, give userid password.

now windows will take care of rest things

You might be storing your webpage folder on physcial location say

apache root
c:\program files\apache2\htdcos\

and you may be access it in browser
like
http://localhost/

for cron job you may place your file anywhere in your harddisc, you may also keep it in folder in apache …

search on your computer for php.exe
you browse to the path or your php.exe files path
then give other inputs
at the end open for advance settings

then "c:\some path\php.exe"
will come add your script name to the end like
"c:\some path\php.exe" "c:\wamp\www\mysite\mycron.php"

press apply
