    Running a task on user logon ONLY during certain times

    Hello! I would like to set a task in Task Scheduler to automatically do something when I log in, but only if that login happens during certain times (for example, 6:45pm through 6am on weekdays, anytime on weekends). Is there a way to have multiple criteria on a task, or would I need to have a task enable another task to chain criteria together? I know I can have multiple triggers, but those run the task whenever any of the criteria are met (OR conditions) and not when all of them are met (AND conditions).

    (If it helps, I'm going to modify this tutorial to display a message if I log in during those times.)

    Do it as a startup script. You log in, the script runs.
