Heres my basic script:

; AutoIt Version: 3.0
; Language:    English
; Platform:    Win9x/NT
; Author:        Brandon Kling (Zeke0238@hotmail.com)
;
; Script Function:
;   Runs the command endlessly.
;

; Activates the window
WinActivate("Window - Microsoft Internet Explorer")
WinWaitActive("Window - Microsoft Internet Explorer")


; Now that the window is active
; Use AutoItSetOption to slow down the typing speed to make up for latency
AutoItSetOption("SendKeyDelay", 500)
Send("{ENTER}{BS}")
Sleep(500)

Now my goal is to have it keep pressing {Enter} and {Bs} but I can figure out how. Even if I could put a set number in, say 500, that would work as well.

I did try this but to no avail:

AutoItSetOption("SendKeyDelay", 500)
$i = 0
Do
    Send("{ENTER}{BS}", $i)
    Sleep(500)
    $i = $i + 1
Until $i = 500

Ha, always seem to figure it out myself when I post asking for help.

When 1
AutoItSetOption("SendKeyDelay", 500)
Send("{ENTER}{BS}")
Sleep(500)
Wend

Didn't understand the When at first but after staring at it in the help file it stuck in.

You don't need to call AutoItSetOption() every iteration of the loop. Calling it once is enough, it's change stays into affect until you call it again.
