On Windows you can use STARTSVC.EXE and STOPSVC.EXE
to achieve this - look 'em up in Google.

Given, however, that you are able to modify the
DNS server's text files directly, I'd suggest
you use a different DNS server which may not
require a reload.  There's definitely a BIND
port for Win32, for example.
