I'm looking for a software (free) that I can configure to pop up a window "alarm" at a particular time I set up.
For instance, being able to set up a pop up window reminder every day at 4 pm.
does anyone know of any?

Write a small Java program and call it using Windows Task Scheduler (or other equivalent program if you are using some other OS). Simple
