    Very few programs can be configured to startup at a schedule, hence the need for another program to launch them later itself. That program need to run at startup for that to happen, which defeats the purpose of portable programs.

    I recommend WinPatrol for Startup Delaying and more, the portable ToGo version doesn't have that feature for the reasons above. If you must have portable freeware, then this donationware/bundleware is the only one I can find: http://www.myportablesoftware.com/mystartupdelayer.aspx

    It's easy to program task scheduler. Read the help:

    Code:
    schtasks /create /?
    Example:

    Code:
    schtasks /create /tn Task_Name /tr "C:\task.bat" /sc onstart /delay 0010:00
